Hidden deficiencies on the property were discovered after the rental period. What to do?

  • Updated

If the lease agreement has expired, the deed of handover and acceptance has been made and the landlord has subsequently discovered some hidden damage, they must inform the tenant thereof and it would be reasonable to keep Rendin updated as well. You can always ask us for advice and guidance.
The landlord should definitely take pictures to document any damage found. The responsibility is first shifted to the former tenant and a compromise is sought, which is sufficient in most cases. If the tenant is not cooperative and does not compensate for the damage, Rendin will step in to help. The damage is compensated to the landlord and then a claim is made against the former tenant. If they do not pay the claim, the next step is going to court. This is handled by Rendin experts.
