It is advisable to assign the Power of Attorney to either your family members or close friend such that in any circumstances, you will have someone neutral and takes care of your interest to act in your interest.
A salesperson can be assisting in managing your property, for example when there is any issues raise by the prospective tenant throughout the tenure of rental, the salesperson can be the first person activated to find out what exactly happen and determine what are the proper actions to be taken. Alternatively you may wish to engage the services of a property managing agent to take care of the general affairs of property.
In a tenancy, the tenant will usually put forward 1 month of security deposit to be safekept by the landlord for 1 year lease (2 months security deposit for 2 years lease). This security deposit should be returned to the tenant once the tenancy expires and the apartment taken over deemed to be free from defects. Otherwise, any costs incurred for the repair works can be deducted from the security deposit if tenant is agreeable to it, if not tenant should pay the necessary amount for the repair. In circumstance where tenants request to break the tenancy, a landlord can either allow the tenant to look for replacement tenants at your approval or forfeit the security deposit totally. Any damages involved should be the responsibility of the outgoing tenant since it is of no fault of the salesperson that tenant is moving out, therefore if you were to be looking for a new tenant, service fees will still be applicable.
I am just about to conclude a rental transaction where my landlord is primarily based on Australia. If you are looking for someone with the experience of handling such cases, perhaps you may wish to consider getting in touch with me.
