Re: Handing back apartment to landlord

it's not difficult to do it by hand either, and allow the agent to take a photo with his smart phone when done. keep the original. (you can add a meter reading in if you haven't already gotten SP to come take a reading) it doesn't have to be unnecessarily detailed. 1 sheet of A4 paper and a pen. ===...

Re: Handing back apartment to landlord

IMO, the photos by themselves are useless - with or without an agent in them. if the photos cannot be proof, then surely any damage that occurs during the vacancy period cannot be pinned onto the tenant? (i do not imply that photos should not be taken, but it's not technically possible to video or p...

Re: Agent is asking brokerage after we moved in

tell him to go get it from the LL. THE END.

he's trying to pull a fast one. threaten that you will make a report.

also, the commission is not a fixed sum. so if there was no agreed sum, there is no money to be paid.

also, how long is your tenancy?

Re: Handing back apartment to landlord

Re: Handing back apartment to landlord

if you know agent has been authorized by LL to sign off on the inspection, please make sure you get the agent there so you can get a document that will help you get your (hopefully entire) deposit back. if there is no form nor authorization, use the agent to sign something that may be beneficial to ...

Re: Cutting out the middleman: renting directly from the landlord

ask to sight the property tax bill and his ID. don't deal directly with the LL unless you know your schizz. AND... don't sign the TA until it is fully satisfactory to you. ask for a soft word copy to review. amend as you wish, send it back. when all parties are happy... YOU print it and provide the ...
