Renting Myth Debunked!

Posted on

Whether you are a landlord or a renter, there is a lot of information out there that you might here that will make you do a double-take. Understanding how the whole landlord, tenant system works will get you in a doozy sometimes but that doesn’t mean that you have to believe everything you here.

This is where we come in to help you debunk some of these myths about the renting industry as a whole. Are you ready to debunk some property and renting myths? Let’s do it!

Myth 1: Landlords Are Responsible for All Repairs and Replacements of Issues

In Malaysia, landlords are responsible for repairs and replacements of things in the house up to a certain time. One thing you should also look at in the lease is that they will be responsible for certain things for 3-6 months and after that, it is considered normal wear and tear. Landlords are supposed to ensure that the house is in a livable and comfortable place.


But always check with your agent what is included in this clause because things like airconditioning maintenance are something that usually isn’t covered. So the myth that the landlord is responsible for all repairs and replacements of things in the house is definitely a myth. Always read the contract!

Myth 2: Rental Prices and Terms of The Contract Are Not Negotiable

Until both landlord and tenant sign the contract, everything is negotiable. Most of the time rental prices can be negotiated. Sometimes, the rental can be reduced if you do not have a car and you would not require a parking space.


Always check the terms first and see if it is something that you want to invest in. This applies to both the landlord and the tenant. As a landlord, you need to trust that the tenant is someone that you can trust to take care of your home. And as a tenant, you need to make sure that the contract protects you when needed and that the pricing and requirements is legal and is in your range of what you want to spend and commit to.

Myth 3: You Are Stuck With The Contract Until It Ends

All contracts are legally required to have an end date and grounds for termination. This is to ensure that everyone gets the chance to get out of a contract if they need to. This clause in the contract is put in there to protect both parties, the landlord and the tenant.

Most of the time in Malaysia you can break the contract and get out of the lease as a tenant but you will need to forfeit your deposit. And as a landlord, if you want to get out of the lease, you will either need to give the tenant time to find a new house and pass them the full deposit as soon as possible.

These are the 3 biggest myths we have heard from multiple people that surround the renting industry. Do you have any myths that you want debunked? Or have you been part of a myth that came true?

We would love to hear your stories.

Become an Awesome Landlord by Doing These Today!

Posted on

Being a landlord can be stressful. You’re worried about if your tenants are maintaining your house, if they are having parties every night or even if they have destroyed your plumbing. Trust us, we’ve heard some horror stories in our time.

But, there have also been horror stories about landlords who weren’t as nice either. At the end of the day, the only way to have a win-win situation is if both landlord and tenant mutually respect each other and understand that it is a legal contract that you are bound by and that everyone deserves to live in a beautiful home and that space deserves to be respected.

So as a property owner, how do you ensure that you are awesome and making sure that your tenants not only respect you but love you too?

Here are some tips on how you can be an awesome landlord:

  1. Being Professional

This is extremely important and that you should be professional from the start. When meeting with your potential tenants or when you drop by for anything, always show up looking professional and that you always maintain professional communications as well.

You need to understand that it is a legal contract that you are signed into and that you should stay professional all the time. Communication is extremely important so that you can keep up with the condition of your home and allowing you to always be in the loop of what is going on.

  1. Being Trustworthy & Someone Who is Reliable

Can you imagine being a landlord that never answers their phone? Your tenant could be calling you because a pipe burst and if you don’t answer, the damage done would be so much worse. If you are a landlord, be prepared to have to tend to emergencies at any time.

We are obviously not expecting you to pick up the phone at 4 am but always strive to get back to your tenant in a reasonable amount of time. Always acknowledge their messages so that they are able to trust you and become more willing to open up about the issues they face.

If you seem like you don’t care about them, the understanding might be that they would not care about your property either. So it’s much better to always strive to be reliable and trustworthy no matter what.

  1. Being Quick and Reliable with Maintenance

Things break all the time and you can’t help it. You are supposed to be responsible to help your tenants fix issues and you should not hold onto it for too long because it might cause some uncomfortable in their home.

It might not be urgent but it’s something that you need to keep up with because you are responsible for it. Also always ensure that you have a budget that is ready for issues like these that crop up.

  1. Compassion

Bad things, mistakes and accidents happen all the time. Unless the tenant has done it on purpose, sometimes you need to be compassionate to understand that something bad had happened.

Especially with the issue with the world and the pandemic that is happening, if they need some time to pay for rent or if they require a lowered rent and you are able to allow that, please be a bit more compassionate and allow that to happen.

Being a property owner is a responsibility, but it’s a great investment and you are able to meet some cool people and give people a home.

Shouldn't Be Hard To Be A Landlord With These Tips!

Posted on

A lot of people want to become a landlord because we have been taught that owning properties is a great way to generate passive income. However, we also know that the myth that being a landlord is tough has deterred a lot of people from becoming a landlord.

But, being a landlord isn’t that hard and it can be a very fulfilling thing if you know what to do and if you are someone who is responsible. Being a landlord isn’t really that hard. Let us break it down for you.

Step 1: Just Be Organised

As a property owner, you will have a lot of documentation at hand. Always make sure that you file all of that safely. Always make sure that you are on top of all your payments and that you keep all your receipts

When you decide to rent out your property, keep your copy of the tenancy agreement in the same place. Also always file all of the payments that your tenant makes to you so that you always know what is happening with the rental and also the utilities.

To make things like paperwork and organisation better, you can always choose to use a property management software that is made for property owners like you.

Step 2: Be Responsive

Your tenant will never know your house as best as you do, so they will most definitely call you for things that might break down or a light switch that they cannot find. Always be available to answer these questions because it will make your tenant’s life easier and when they are happy they are more likely to respect and enjoy living in your property.

Don’t take too long to respond to their requests or messages. If you are responsive the minute you get the message, the faster you solve the issue the faster you get back to your normal life. So being a responsive landlord is a win-win situation for everyone.

Step 3: Communicate

A lot of times, things that are left unsaid can lead to miscommunication. This is why it’s extremely important to always communicate with your tenant and your agent or the people managing your property. You should also communicate with the management team of your property if it’s a condominium or gated community.

 This way you can keep up to date with all the meetings, decisions made and topics that they are discussing at the moment. Keeping an open line of communication will greatly improve your life as a landlord and for sure make it a lot simpler. The more information you have the better your life will be.

Step 4: Invest in A Property Management Software

We are always busy and might get caught up in the day to day and it’s understandable that some days you may drop the ball as a landlord.

So why not get someone else to manage it for you? BlueDuck is a property management software and service that will take care of everything from screening tenants, e-signing of contracts, direct debits of rental and even handling all the maintenance requests for you and your tenants.

All you have to do is sit back and relax and answer questions whenever needed. This way you get to thoroughly enjoy the life of being a landlord and not having to sweat the small stuff.

If you want to know more about the what BlueDuck can do for you, you know what to do!
