1 Query on Lease Contract on Thu Nov 03, 2011 12:56 am

Good day to the good folks of this site.

I'd just like to ask if there are any laws that restricts me, as a lessor, to do the ff things:

1. State on the contract of lease to pay the utilities on time (utility under my name) and also pay a share on a utility bill that covers my house and the leased properties (situation is that me and the lessee share a utility meaning there is only one bill for the both of us)?

2. Since only the apartment is rented, can I also ask them to remove their belongings on my garage, as my garage is the walkway to their door and mine?

3. They have changed their locks and did not give me a duplicate key. Do I have the right to ask them for a duplicate? Unfortunately, this was not stated on the lease.

Hoping to hear your answers. Thank you and more power.

1) i recommend you purchase a separate meter for your house or get a separate line altogether.

2) yes

3) doe your lease say you have the right to enter the premises? my position here is that they are obligated to give you key at the end of the lease period, but you have the right to inspect with prior notice.

1. This is noted, however, this is a current situation now and the lessee is having problems paying their share of the utility stated under the contract of lease.

2. Glad to know, thank you.

3.Yes, it is stated there that we have the right to inspect as long as we advise the lessee beforehand.

also:

1. Is it my responsibility to have a separate line/meter for them?

getting another meter will prevent arguments on how much was consumed by who.
