stamp fees and servicing of AC units....

Post by pfjonesy » Tue, 08 Jun 2010 5:21 pm

Last question (he says hopefully)....and thanks to those who have responded to previous topics.

The proposed tenancy agreement stipulates that we must have all AC units serviced every 2 months, and that the landlord may ask for the service history to back this up. Is this standard?

Also - I now discover I am liable for the stamp fees to execute the TA document. $560 - again, is this standard?

Appreciate any advice.....

Both are standard in most TA but Air Con servicing is normally quarterly so I would question that.

Stamp Duty is calculated depending on the monthly rental amount and the length of the TA

Scroll down the link below which shows you how the Stamp Duty is calculated ... rental.htm

For the record, I told my LL that I hardly use certain AC units, which can be corroborated by the service dude. (I live by the East Coast, pretty breezy here.) Anyway, nett nett, the servicing frequency is less and the total charges are down. Worth a try eh.
