Apartment Listing  

If you are planning to rent your property out, keep certain points in mind. Being a landlord comes with numerous rights and responsibilities. Always remember to have a thorough knowledge about the rules and laws that govern your State. Different provinces have a different set of rules.

The amount of security deposit you can charge, the percentage increase in rent on an annual basis defer according to the State in which you stay. So, have a thorough knowledge about the basic rules and regulations involved in renting your property out. Do not get caught in legal tangles.

One of the most important characteristics of a smart landlord is in his ability to choose a prefect tenant. When you give your property out to a stranger, you would obviously be worried whether the tenant can handle the property with care. In addition, finding a trustworthy tenant who pays the rent on time is a hard task. The key here is to advertise your property in the right way. Newspapers, internet and magazines are a perfect place to get started. Advertise in a professional manner even if you are new to the field of real estate. Fix an appointment with the prospective tenant and take him around your property. Read his body language. If you find him to be careless, negligent and if you feel he is deliberately trying to find faults in your property it is better look out for a different person.

Check out the tenant’s credit history to make sure he does not have any bankruptcies. You can also contact his previous landlords to ask about his behavior. Ask the tenant to give you a couple of contacts for further clarification. Ask for his financial status. When you sign a lease contract, explain the rulers and regulations in a clear and crisp manner to the person to avoid any type of legal quarrels or misunderstandings in the future.
