A written legal contract between yourself and your tenant(s) will make your preferences known and protect you if any issues arise. Although oral agreements are lawful in certain circumstances, a written contract is much more successful.
We here at House Real can help review a lease contract and advise as to any pitfalls you may want your lawyer to amend or look into further.
Before tenants move in, it is essential to conduct an inventory of all items in the property and what condition these items were in at the time. The condition of the property’s rooms should also be checked, recording all signs of wear and tear, cleanliness, etc.
This is crucial to complete before the tenants move in, as inventory and condition reports can reduce the risk of a long-lasting dispute when the tenancy ends if there are any deposit deductions.
The team at House Real can assist you in carrying out inventory and condition checks before your new tenants move in.
When a tenant breaks the lease in most states, landlords should make an appropriate effort to re-rent the property instead of charging the tenant for any remaining rent under the lease. Understanding when a tenant is justified in breaking a lease is also essential.
Similarly, if a tenant does not pay rent on time, landlords might have the right to charge a late fee or even evict the tenant, depending on the state laws. In some states, such as Maine, renters are given a grace period before a late fee can be charged. Before taking action against tenants, landlords must familiarize themselves with the regulations in their area.
House Real can help by offering practical advice on how to resolve these issues, as a first step before consulting with costly attorneys to take legal action.
