Re: Where to look for 6 month rental?

Thank you for the offer but I am looking for a 2 bedroom. I am glad to hear that you seem fair to your tenants. I hope the next time around I also get the same experience.

Re: Using security deposit as last month's rent?

I was under the impression that if just about any document was not notarized, that it was not considered legal? Jobs, cars, real estate all required a notary at some point along the process. If that is the case you could just leave whenever you wanted. Everyone I know, chilean and foreign have told...

Re: Using security deposit as last month's rent?

We are not planning on renewing the lease with them but is it possible to use the security deposit as last month's rent? The lease says we can not but I am told he can't enforce it being that it's our last month and is quite common in Chile to do this. As a norm it should be returned (or not) to th...

Re: Using security deposit as last month's rent?

Depends on the type of contract and what it is for. When in doubt get it notarized. Real estate always must be notarized. A very good point-thank you. We were just very new and never had to have it done back home. I got mixed reviews about getting a lease notarized when I asked around after the fac...

Re: Using security deposit as last month's rent?

Could you please explain this sentence? when he refused-basically he wants money for the apartment and sees no reason to have good will. Apparently the apartment was rented before us and there were bills that were not paid. All the bills continued to come to the apartment and he never responded to ...

Re: Using security deposit as last month's rent?

Without a valid contract, who do you think has more power in the situation where especially in Chile the occupier has the upper hand over the owner? What makes the contract valid? It being notarized? Are there Chilean rental laws that I can read somewhere on line to get a better idea of what is/isn...

Using security deposit as last month's rent?

Hi all, We moved into our apartment in Santiago in November last year and the lease is set to expire October of this year. However, our landlord has been nothing but stressful and such a pain since we moved in. We have paid all the bills on time and even have paid his previous bills (deducting it fr...
