It’s a very lucrative or profitable decision to convert your property into a rental property, but there are
some perils when you are going to use it as rental property. So, there are some points that you must
know about when you are going to convert your personal property into a rental property.
If you have an extra space, you cannot use it for renters or allow anyone to move in as a renter. Or if you
build a space for renting purpose without informing to your municipality, it may cause a big problem
because some municipalities will not give permission for secondary suites and in that case when you
found with rental property (without permission from Municipal) you may treat as guilty and you should
pay the penalty or dismantle the rental property. A landlord must verify their secondary unit that meets
the minimum requirements, from municipalities so that they can apply for insurance. Insurance will help
to recover your rental property from any damage, for example: if you should have two exits and enough
height of ceilings, etc. you may got the permit from municipal and able to get insurance, but if you don’t
follow the rules and your insurance company didn’t aware about the second unit then will not pay the
insurance for the second unit, and you will suffer from the heavy loss.

monthly rent to your renters, they claim it for deduction on income tax. If your renter will not claim for
deduction than your monthly rent may be declared as monthly income and pay tax accordingly. Apart

new fittings for renters, etc.

renter but too hard to get rented out. In all, over the country government rules and regulations are the
same, all renters are protected by the provincial legislation and governing bodies so it is very difficult get
renters out from the rental property, you need a very good reason for eviction process. As a landlord
you can add your conditions in the lease agreement, but it should be valid. If your renter will leave your
rental home before expiring agreement, you should ask to stay more if they want. When your renter
move out you need to inspect about the damages and repair that should be done and wait for the new
It is very tough task to find a right and perfect tenant, if you are just starting renting then you should
take help from real estate agents. They will provide you right renters, according to your decided rent,
but will cost you. If you are going to find it yourself then it may take time and may you get the wrong
candidate. You have to help form social & print media, family, colleagues & friends, old renters, if you
are going to find them yourself.
Landlords will use Interior Decorating To Their Rental property to increase the rent, but the landlord
will not raise rent more then decided rent according to the location. So it is good to provide a better
home for rent not add more amenities. If landlords really want to raise rents then you should buy a new
property with high amenities in the best location.
