Instead of signing a provisional lease/lease, another possible scenario is that the tenant may have to sign a document called “Rental Offer”. This document is then signed by the owner (i.e. accepted). In practice, the consequences of signing a leasing offer are similar to those of signing a lease. There is a standard clause in a rental agreement that states that a tenant may not assign, transfer, sublet or partially communicate ownership of the premises or part of it to another person during the rental period, and the lease agreement is personal to the tenant mentioned in the agreement. Unless previously agreed between the lessor and the tenant, any sublease may result in a breach of contract. In Hong Kong, rentals do not include incidentals. However, in some cases, these incidental costs may be included in the rental price at a limited price for incidental costs, and any fee above this amount may be the responsibility of the tenant.

This is one of the few ways for property owners and owners to protect their real estate. You are responsible for getting your rent by the hour. The lease indicates the date on which you must pay your rent, incidentals and other bills to your landlord each month.

It is important to talk about the late rent policy in your lease. The success of your investment depends directly on whether your tenants pay you the rent on time. Without rent, your cash flow stops, which can have a negative impact on your real estate business if it`s a recurring issue. How and when do you impose a penalty if your tenants don`t pay on time? You may be able to let it go the first time, but if it continues, you have to be careful. You have different ways to deal with late rental issues (a problem that all property owners and owners deal with). You can consider the rent as late if it is only paid one day after the date indicated in the month (on the lease), or you can decide to give an additional period of three to five days. There is no industry standard and it is up to you to do so. When it comes to financial penalty options, you may charge a flat fee or a percentage of rent for each other day the rent is delayed.

There`s a bit of room for freedom in this area, but remember to check with the real estate laws in your local market to determine what`s legal and what`s not. When signing a formal rental agreement, the normal requirement is the 2-month rent for the deposit, 1 month`s rent in advance, the commission for real estate agents within half a month and the stamp duty to be paid to the “HKSAR government”. In accordance with the Landlords and Tenants (Consolidation) (Amendment) Regulations 2004, you and your landlord can decide whether you have a dwelling on or after September 9. Unless it is possible to extend the clause of your existing lease agreement or other written agreement that respects your right to renew rent. A rental agreement must be stamped within 30 days of performance. You can affix a rental agreement on the Internet, by mail or in person at the stamp office of the tax office.. . .
