The house is a property that could be “employed” to supplement their income. One way is to rent it. To protect the practice of renting a house, the government issued Government Regulation regarding the Non Owner Occupancy Houses. This regulation will provide legal protection guarantee for both owners and tenants / occupants.

If you plan to rent a house, you as a homeowner must pay attention to the legal agreement between the owner of the house with tenants. The residential houses by non-owners by way of a lease is only valid if the owner’s consent or permission. This Agreement may be made in the form of a written agreement. There are 3 clauses that should be agreed on in the lease agreement, the clause the rights and duties, term of lease clauses, and clause of the lease price.

Notice the rights and obligation

As a homeowner, you have the right to receive rents from the tenants and gave the house in good condition according to the conditions set forth in the agreement. Good housing conditions are not only physically, but also non-physical. Non-physical condition in question is a legal condition of the house, a rental house must be clean of the dispute and not secured.

While the tenant is obliged to use and occupy the house in accordance with its function. Also needs to be explained in the clause the rights and obligations, who will pay the bills incurred during the tenant occupies the house (such as electricity, telephone, and water).

When the costs are borne by the tenant, you try to ask for a deposit to the tenant at the time of the first lease payment. These deposits are used when there are arrears of electricity or telephone bill, after the tenants left the house.

If money does not guarantee you include in clause agreement, feared by the end of the lease houses, tenants leaving in arrears bill in large numbers.
