Tips on renting flat

 

THINKING of renting a flat? To avoid falling prey to a rental scam, Mr Eric Cheng, executive director of HSR property group, suggests that tenants:

 

View the flat first to ensure it is in good condition.

 

Check that the landlord is the rightful owner by asking to see the conservancy charges bill.

 

Pay the deposit with a cheque and only after collecting the key personally. It will be easier to prove that payment was made.

 

Move in as soon as possible.

 

Engage a housing agent. Most established agencies refund deposits if anything goes wrong.
