Residential Rentals RoundUp #6 | How Not to Jeopardise Your Landlord/s Entitlement to a Cancellation Penalty, Rent Arrears Repayment Agreements in Uncertainty and more . . .
In line with my goal of providing rental agencies and agents with practical information, guidelines and resources, I have prepared three sets of guidelines to assist my clients, their agents and their landlord and tenant clients to ensure that inspections are carried out in as safe a manner as possible and that tenants and landlords understand their responsibilities in this regard.
I had the most amazing chat with Elize le Roux, MD of Xpello, to get her views on this question . . .
Elize shared a lot of very useful – and, more importantly,
PRACTICAL – advice and insights on this extremely pertinent topic.
Some of the highlights . . .
- the importance of following due process, including that all-important Letter of Demand
- the practicalities of lease cancellation & evictions under Lockdown . . . and beyond
- practical considerations – and possible new timeframes to expect – for eviction applications post-Lockdown
- practical alternatives to lease cancellation & evictions
