Nightmare ok! Nighmare. This happened in July 2015. The rented property is an end lot located in Shah Alam.
Here the situation.
I have a listing in Seksyen 6 Shah Alam with Landlord that I have been working with since 2011. The said unit is a fully furnished double storey link house. I shared the listing to with colleagues and one of them brought a very good candidate. A director for one of companies operating in Shah Alam. The tenancy will be between the company he works for and landlord. To me, this is a good potential as I like the stability a company provides.
After one showing, the prospect Tenant like the house and subsequently made a number of request such as extra air conditions, new refrigerator and few more which the owner complied. About two weeks after he and his family moved in, my colleague received call Tenant that he wanted to move out and want to see her to return keys. Naturally we were shocked.
Another meeting was set between me, Landlord and my colleague as tenant's agent. Landlord was absolutely not happy and asking us to replace with new tenant. Landlord has spent an amount of money and Tenant that we brought in did not honour the tenancy.
Here some issue:
2. Duration signed & stamped
3. Agent's fee is one month rental for period of tenancy
4. Agent has to replace for free
The deposit was forfeited.
Duration was two years and by right the Tenant has to reimburse owner whole remaining sum because he breaks the promise
The owner was right to ask the agent (which is me) to replace with new tenant for free. At first I was sad. Why should I do it for free? Sedih juga sebab penat yang dulu tak habis lagi... Somemore I shared the fee with my colleague, she should bear it. However, the trust was given to me by Landlord. So teh duty fell on me, not her.
Alhamdulillah, I managed to find new tenant not long after that. So far, Landlord is happy with MY tenant.
Moral: Jangan berkira bila bekerja.
|Thankful because it ended well with my Landlord|
