Housing rental is a responsible matter and it is necessary to approach it seriously. But if you fulfill a few simple rules, your choice will not make you regret yourself.
First of all, pay attention to the electrics, plumbing and windows. Cranes should work normally, pipes – be dry and without drops of water at the joints. There should not be any dampness on the floor and in the corners. Sockets and switches should be securely fixed on the walls, and do not contain traces of burning or melting. Also discuss with the owner the ability to connect the Internet. Pay attention to the windows. If they are wooden, check that all hooks and latches work so that there are no unpleasant surprises. Agree with the owner of the apartment to change locks. So you will protect yourself from possible penetration of former tenants into housing.
If there are no questions for the apartment, inspect the entrance and the courtyard of the house. If cigarette butts, garbage and beer bottles are scattered on the stairwells, keep in mind that the entrance is unlikely to be quiet and safe. Also specify who your neighbors. After all, a grumpy neighbor can become a source of your moral discomfort for a long time.
Now from the questions of aesthetics and comfort to questions more serious.
Ask the owner of the apartment with documents that will confirm his identity (passport and identification code) and ownership of the housing that he passes. This will allow you to avoid possible unpleasant situations in the future. If the apartment is the joint property of the lessor and his spouse (spouse), demand confirmation of their consent to transfer housing for rent. Draw up a lease transaction notarized? Insist on extracting BTI from the register, as well as an act of techinventarization.
Remember, the most important thing is the correctly drawn up contract. If there is an appropriate agreement of the parties or the term of the contract for more than 3 years, then the contract is notarized by the contract. If less than 3 years, then do not assure. But the main thing is that the agreement on the signatures of both parties has legal force.
The contract must have all the details of the parties to the transaction: name, passport data, identification code, registration; The terms and amount of the monthly rent are indicated; Address data and area of rented housing. You can also add an addition to all the objects in the apartment transferred for rent, their list and condition. If there are additional conditions, then they also need to be indicated. This may be utility bills, the possibility of repair, fines for delaying rental payment, price growth conditions.
These simple rules will help you live comfortably in rental housing and avoid problems with the tenant.
