Is there really a standard rule in renting out a room
Posted: Fri, 28 Sep 2018 3:01 pm
I have just transferred recently last July 27 in Marsiling. I know the owner applies what he said as the so called standard rule of 6 month's stay. I am actually renting a room wih some other Malaysian lady. I was waiting for the contract but he never given out contract of of agreement to rent the room for 6 months. However, I notice that during the short course of stay, privacy became an issue as he goes inside the room and rearrange our things without asking permission from us. He also cast doubts on renters such as reminding them about closng aircons and payment every now and then even if assuring him. She also goes in even if the room is closed. There are some other unexpected issue as well that have caused disagreements. Finally he asked me to leave but wait till 6 months. The environment is not getting better so I decided to move in earier but he said he won't give back my advance deposit if I moved out early. But we don't have any contract. Do you think he has the right to forfeit my advance deposit without an agreement as he fight for standard rule. He just started renting out the room to several people just this year? Thank you for your response.
