Some questions to ask your rental property manager about the rental agreement

happy man

Let’s take a look at some of the issues associated with rental management. Renters do have rights, and the information provided below will help to understand them and take action if necessary.

If a tenant has a vacant unit, that is not being used as a residence, that tenant should be notified in writing. They should be given a reasonable amount of time to find alternate accommodation. If they do not, the property management company can put a notice on the property informing other tenants of the condition of the property.

The Tenant can also bring a claim of unlawful eviction to court, and a rent increase may be possible, or a repossession order may be applied. The Tenant may seek legal advice from the Rental Property Management like Wiesbaden Paul & Partner. Do keep in mind that landlords are protected by legislation under the Residential Tenancies Act and are not liable for any loss of rent that may be caused by tenants who exercise their right to reclaim their tenancy rights.

This part of the RMT agreement requires that all rents, including taxes and insurance premiums, are included in the agreed-upon rental amount. Failure to pay rent will result in either the landlord having to enter the premises or the tenant being evicted.

The right to repair includes the right to have essential work carried out to bring the property up to standard, or any such repairs not to be carried out unless they are absolutely necessary. The landlord is entitled to make repairs themselves or get a solicitor involved. If the landlord does not comply with the terms of the RMT, the tenant can bring a claim to court.

If a Tenant should have an accident on the property, and the landlord requires the property for repair, they should be allowed to carry out those repairs. Only in very specific cases may the landlord have the right to refuse to allow repairs to be carried out on the property. Any damage that is caused to a property by a tenant will be their responsibility.

In the event of a claim of negligence, the property management company is entitled to claim for both the loss of personal property and any other items that were lost in the property. It may be difficult to prove negligence, however in some cases, it may be possible to do so. The landlord will be entitled to keep the items.

The use of valuable items of personal property is subject to the RMT. At the conclusion of the agreement, a Tenant should be allowed to retrieve all personal belongings. If they cannot, they should be given the opportunity to exchange them for another item from the landlord.

Any time a tenant moves into different properties, they should be made aware of this by the landlord. They are entitled to move at any time and do not have to wait until a year has passed from their last rent payment.

A landlord is entitled to give a tenant in an eviction notice, and an agreement form. If the tenant wishes to go to court to challenge the validity of the agreement, they can do so. Should the tenant attempt to pay the rent with money that was stolen from them by a tenant who did not follow the rules of the RMT, then the theft amount is at the landlord’s discretion.

If a tenant conducts unlawful activities on the property, the landlord can apply to the Landlord and Tenant Board for a possession order. These actions include keeping drugs on the property, using the property for illegal activities, creating a nuisance, and not paying the rent. This can lead to a warrant being issued for the tenant’s arrest.

Tenants should be provided with written advice of the RMT and be provided with relevant advice regarding the process of renter’s compensation, and also be informed of their rights under the RTA. The rights of both the landlord and tenant in the RTA are set out in section 95 of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1991. All rules and regulations associated with the RTA are outlined in the legislation.
