Customer Question

What expenses are the responsibility of a tenant over & above the rent & utilities & telecom services?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I might also add that I am the joint owner of the property who has entered into an agreement to rent the house @ 1/2 the going rental of typical properties. i.e. If we were renting to someone it would be divided by 2. So I am paying my half. Are expenses, then,such as rates or property taxes solely down to me or split?

Can you clarify the arrangement regarding the property please?

Is it commercial /residential?

Do you have any written agreement?

It's residential & as of now there is no written agreement.

What is the arrangement, have you let and if so on what terms or do you intend to let?

Why are you renting at 1/2 rent?

Will you reside in the property as well as the tenant?

What will the tenant rent, room or separate dwelling with own bathroom and kitchen?
