The Renting Laws Are Serious

By Tash Johns

We are seeing more and more media headlines of private landlords being sued in the Courts for not abiding by the law.
This is a friendly reminder that as your managing agent we must act in accordance with the law. It is our role to protect you on all levels.
Contracting outside of the law can result in fines to the landlord and agent.
We cannot discriminate against a type of tenant when choosing the best possible tenant for you; we cannot request that the tenant give greater notice to vacate than what is stipulated in legislation; we cannot access the property
without first giving notice; we cannot increase rents without giving the correct notice; we cannot ask tenants to attend to their own maintenance and we cannot avoid replacing appliances included in the tenancy if they breakdown, just to name a few.
