What To Remember When Renting A Flat

Several people in the cities live in rented accommodation. If you handle the process right, your stay will be comfortable for both you and your flat owner.

Living on rent in Indian cities is not a big deal for people, whether single or with families. The high price of accommodation all over the country makes it difficult for most people to purchase homes, while others may be in a particular city for a brief period only. By now, the rental ecosystem in India is clearly defined by a fixed set of rules.

In the light of people planning terror strikes from rental accommodation, or inconveniencing the neighbours, buildings are sceptical about allowing tenant into their premises. There are several cases of societies refusing people of a certain religion or gender, or specifically to bachelors or spinsters, or live-in couples and persons working in the entertainment industry. However, you can make a good first impression and follow some rules to make your stay in a rented accommodation easier for yourself and the building society:

Get a referral. If you find a good house in a decent locality, but the society will not entertain youbecause you are single, get a referral from a resident of that building. This referral will open the door for future negotiations. Get a character certificate from your workplace, and take a copy with you for your interview with the society chairman and secretary.

Meet the managing committee members.The first thing you should do is to meet the building secretary and chairman and ask the flat owner to introduce you. Then take over and tell them what you do, how long you will be using the flat, and assure them that you will submit the house documents as soon as the flat agreement is registered.

Sort out bill payment arrangements.Write out a series of post-datedcheques and give them to the owner at the time of registration. Work out how you will settle the electricity, cable and gas bills. Note that the building maintenance and water bills are to be paid by the owner and not by you.

Register your flat agreement.Register your flat agreement;the document must state the lease period, the complete names and permanent addresses of the owner and you, the purpose for which you are leasing the flat, the monthly rent you are paying and the mandatory one-month notice applicable to both parties for vacating the premises.

Submit all your documents.Undergo a police verification process once the agreement is registered. Attach a copy of the police certificate with a copy of your agreement. Submit the whole lot to the building society and take a receipt.

Follow all building rules.Do not challenge the building’s rules, and do not behave in a way that will inconvenience or disturb others. Pay all utility bills on time. Do not throw loud parties or park in someone else’s space. Be friendly and create a positive impression about yourself.
