Insurance Protection:

Who will pay for the Allianz protection?

You as the landlord will pay for the insurance protection. All you need to pay is: (Last month’s rental + 6%SST) + RM10 stamping fee

Note:

The 6%SST and RM10 will be deducted from your 1st month’s rent. Insurance coverage is applicable to only those who have completed transactions with SPEEDHOME (rental ranging from RM800 – RM5000 for property/house and RM300-RM1500 for room).

Room Rental & Utility Costs

What should be included with my rental? / Should utilities be included in the rental?

Your rental amount should include utilities, Internet and once a month cleaning costs. Note that if you set your rental amount too high, it will be difficult for your property to attract tenants. We highly advise you to check out the average value of the same properties in the surrounding area and calculate costs before setting the amount.

Is there a limit for utility / internet costs being included in the rental amount?

Yes, there is. You should estimate the cost properly. If the total amount is set too low, you will lose out on money. Be careful when you combine your utility bills and rental!

What if the tenant keeps the common room dirty? Who will do the cleaning?

The tenant is responsible for their own room. If the tenant moves out and leaves the room dirty, you can claim cleaning charges from Allianz up to RM200.

Payment

In the case of default payment, when will SPEEDHOME pay me? / What if my tenant refuses to pay rent? / What if my tenant defaults?

Will I be notified in case of non-payment? / What if rental hasn’t been paid or transferred to me?
