Your questions answered

What are outgoings and should I be paying them?

Outgoing costs associated with the property include insurance, rates, and repair costs.

In most cases, tenants will need to pay the outgoings. The landlord will generally pay the outgoings when they are due and then recover the costs from the tenant within 14 days. Alternatively, the tenant can pay the outgoings directly.

I have fixed annual increases in my lease, is this common?

Yes, it is a common practice to have fixed annual increases in your lease. These are typically in line with the consumer price index (CPI).

My landlord has substantially increased my rent when renewing my lease, can I contest this?

Yes, you can dispute a rent increase as a tenant. If you want to dispute the landlord’s market review of the rent, both parties can appoint a valuer to determine the market rent for the first year of a new term.

Both parties must accept the valuer's determination, unless the party disputing it can discredit the valuer's opinion.
