Thread: Rental Help

  1. #1

    Default Rental Help

    My tenant had some problem with the toilet and we had to replace the toilet bowl and wanted to claim from them as it is above the agreed amount to fork out by landlord as in the contract. However, my agent said it is a small work due to the technicality of the issue so we have to bear it.

    May I know where can I check on guidelines on this kind of situation? I thought it is based on the total amount of work needed to solve the issue?

    Usually in contract, there are two important clauses.

    1) Within the first month, LL bear full cost
    2) After first month, tenant bear first $150 or $200 depending on the contract. LL bear the rest.

    But I have to say, in MOST contracts. You got to check yours. And if this project still have warranty, get the developer to fix it.

    Usually not pay "the rest" right?

    Usually above 150 or 200, landlord pays the full sum.
    The three laws of Kelonguni:

    Where there is kelong, there is guni.
    No kelong no guni.
    More kelong = more guni.

    Thomas is correct. Tenant is 'insured' against the cost not exploding more than $200 usually. The rest is to be paid by us.

    A toilet bowl including installation should not go above $500. You do the sums Jackie.

    all thats been said is generally true and correct.
    But still need to ascertain what is the issue...

    if it is a damage due to wilful act ... tenant has to bear the entire cost
