Imagine: you signed a lease with a family of three, received an advance payment, and are calmly waiting for the next rental payment. And suddenly your neighbors report that it is not a family of three who lives in your apartment, but a whole “herd” of incomprehensible personalities. The doors of the apartment are constantly banging, water is constantly pouring and the noise and smells of fried potatoes do not stop ... ...

I described another terrible dream of the landlord: A whole camp lives in the apartment!

In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”

And the main reason for the problem: misuse of the premises and violation of the terms of the lease agreement.

So, in this article we will continue to analyze the various situations that apartment owners who rent out can get into and figure out what needs to be done in order not to get into such situations.

Again, let's start with the most important thing - the lease. You should never neglect it. This is the main protection of both the landlord and the tenant. The contract is written exactly in the case when something goes wrong. The more carefully you approach this issue, the less problems there will be in the future. In addition, even at the stage of consideration of the lease agreement, one can understand what to expect from the future tenant. If he categorically refuses to sign under this or that clause of the lease agreement, then he knows in advance that he will violate it. If you are assured that the future tenant has been renting apartments for 10 years and nothing has ever happened and why this agreement is needed, do not believe it, be prudent.

I've always been ashamed to look at lease agreements with one page text that brokers quickly try to sign and run away with their money. But what about responsibility, because we are dealing not only with large amounts of money of our clients, but also with far-reaching consequences of our actions. After all, if we come to the doctor with a serious problem, we will not pay for the fact that he prescribes ascorbic acid for us, so why can we remain so reckless in matters of real estate. Unfortunately, this attitude of many real estate brokers creates a negative attitude towards our profession. It is important that when ordering a service to a realtor, the property owner knows that the realtor will apply all his experience and professionalism to protect both the owner and his property from all possible problems.

So, in this article we will figure out how to rent out the property to the very person who introduced himself to you as your future tenant.

Who will live in your apartment?

In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”

Let's start with who we live in our apartment. This question, as one of the most important, usually appears in one of the first clauses of the lease agreement. It is very important to register by name everyone who will live in your property and use your property.

Yes, at the very beginning of the contract there is a signatory, he is also responsible for everything that will happen to your property, but it is important for you to avoid such a situation when such a signatory will have a "very large family."

I will give an example of the wording of this clause of the lease:

“Purpose of the lease: the premise (apartment) is transferred for residence exclusively to Mr. AA Ivanov. and members of his family - Ivanova OO. and Ivanova I.A. "

Thus, once again entering your house to check the integrity of the property or for any other matter, and finding there a kind of hostel or brothel, you can safely call the police, the law will be on your side.

In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”

It is also very important to include this clause in the reasons for the termination of the lease. Otherwise, if you will not be able to stop such an outrage, why do you need to register by name all residents.

In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”

Penalties for illegal living in your apartment should also be tangible. I usually prescribe them at the rate of one month's lease plus the last month's prepaid lease remains with the landlord for damages.

And of course, in the rental agreement it is important to prescribe the possibility of the owner of the apartment regularly (does not mean when he wants to) check the condition of the apartment and compliance with the terms of the rental agreement. As a rule, the parties to the agreement agree to meet in the apartment no more than once a month if the payments are monthly, or once a quarter if the payments are quarterly. This issue would be worth considering in more detail, so we will postpone this in a separate article.

By the way, I strongly advise you to discuss in advance the issue of keeping pets in a rented apartment, but more on that in another article.

In the meantime, there is no need to worry about it. ”
