A couple of articles that where published on the blog a while back could probably do with revisiting.
Both articles have got me thinking again about how to handle relationship rent payment.
Perhaps it is better to be a proactive relationship tenant. Actively seek to pay more than the bare minimum required so the relationship continues to grow and mature.
Therefore pay what’s actually fair and effective keep the place in good order and look after the relationship, even look for new and interesting ways to pay the rent. Because relationships by their very nature exist in a volatile and ever changing market. The last thing you really want is to be is evicted for non payment of rent.
It’s also important to agree up front how much rent you can afford or realistically expect to receive. It’s also worth considering if it’s a shared tenancy or is likely to be in the future, this may have a major impact upon the terms of the tenancy agreement.
The only other things to remember are don’t feel you can’t renegotiate the terms of the agreement and don’t forget to read the small print 😉
