Tenant And Property Damage


Apartment Listing  

If you are planning to rent your property out, keep certain points in mind. Firstly, be absolutely certain about the tenant before handing over the keys. Do not rent your property to people who are not genuinely concerned. Observe their body language. Check out their background information. Make sure they are not involved in any legal issues.

Your primary concern would obviously be the condition of your property after you have rented it out. You would want the tenant to treat the property like his own without causing unwanted damage. Firstly, be very clear about the different rules stated in the lease contract. Inform the tenant well in advance that undue damage to the property will not be entertained.

Also, mention the rules regarding the security deposit prior to renting your property out. This is crucial if you are renting your property out to students or bachelors who do not have any experience of staying alone in a new house.

You cannot charge the tenant for regular wear and tear like fading of paint color, worn carpets, etc. which are common while staying in a house for a long period. However, you can charge the tenant for extensive damages like broken windows, dirty interiors, etc. Even if the tenant modifies the interiors of the house without prior consent of the landlord, the tenant is liable to pay up for extra charges.

Encourage the tenant to keep you well informed about any immediate repair or maintenance work, which the house requires. This way, you and your tenant can considerably reduce the monetary losses.
