House for rent: who pays the bills

House for rent: who pays the bills

If you have a House for rent, of course you want to know what the expenses which compete with you and which with the landlord. Here is a complete list (Tasi, tari, imu, condominium, works ...) so as not to go wrong!

The expenses to be incurred for aHouse for rentare different according to the type ofcontractstipulated at the time of the lease. It is at the time of the agreement between the two parties that thecosts.

Reference regulations

Therelawreference in terms ofcost sharingbetween landlord and tenant, is the law on fair rent no. 392 of 27 July 1978. This law was partially repealed by law 431 of 1998. A referenceregulatorymore complete is given by the Civil Code with the articles between 1571 and 1614.

According to the law, in case offree rent contract, L'tenant and ownerof the house can agree as they see fit. On the contrary, in agreements with an agreed fee, criteria are appliedbreakdown of expenses. These criteria are contained in annex G of the ministerial decree of 30 December 2002. There is also another hypothesis, that of the contracts stipulated between the associations of owners and tenants' unions: in this case, reference is made to the table attached to the ministerial decree January 16, 2007.

House for rent: who pays the bills

As anticipated, if the rental contract for the house is at "Agreed Rent" thetenantand the owner can refer to a well-structured and statutory table. The same goes if the contract is incorporated in the territorial agreements.

If the lease of the rented house is free, the tenant and the owner should have set very specific conditions in black and white. Unfortunately this does not always happen.

In this case, we quote Article 1576 of the Civil Code: "the lessor must perform, during the lease, allnecessary repairs, except those of small maintenance which are to be paid by theconductor "This article leaves a lot of room for interpretation. What are the "small" repair costs that are due to the tenant and which are the "important" ones?

Jurisprudence, litigation after litigation, has drawn a border line.

The expenses of repairat the expense of the owner are thosenecessaryand essential to ensure that the tenant can enjoy the property. That means:

  • Maintenance of the electrical system
  • Boiler maintenance
  • Maintenance of the heating system
  • Maintenance of the protective structures

If the house needs onerepair expenseurgent, the tenant can bear the expense and then request a refund from the owner. Article 1577 of the Civil Code specifies that the tenant is obliged to notify the owner of the expense he is about to incur. If the owner has not been informed, he can demonstrate that by proceeding independently he would have spent less and thus could return the tenant a lower amount than that which the same tenant actually incurred for the repair.

Let's talk now about specific cases.

House for rent: who pays the Tasi

The Tasi is a tax on "invisible services", that is, those costs incurred by the municipality for lighting the streets, cleaning the gardens ... This tax is payable by the owner of the property and not by the tenant.

House for rent: who pays the Tari

If you are wondering who pays the garbage tax (garbage tax, waste tax or simply TARI), this is the responsibility of the tenant. The tari, therefore, must be paid by those who use the property and therefore by the tenant.

House for rent: who pays the Imu

Who has to pay the IMU, the owner or the tenant? Imu is borne by the owner. Indeed, the owners of houses rented with an agreed rent can have a 25% reduction in the IMU.

House for rent: who pays the condominium

In the free rent contract, as anticipated, the parties can agree on the sharing of the costs of the condominium. The condominium expenses can be divided in different ways and you should refer to your lease. If nothing has been specified in the contract, this rule applies:

  • The tenant must cover the ordinary maintenance costs
    Cleaning of common areas, expenses for lighting the building ...
  • The landlord or landlord must cover extraordinary expenses
    Repair of the lift, renovation of facades, repair of gates ...

Other examples of extraordinary maintenance to be carried out by the owner are: reconstruction of the roof, painting, replacement of systems and other major interventions.

The costs related to water consumption, electricity consumption, cleaning the stairs ... are borne by the tenant.

Who pays for the concierge service?The distribution criteria specified in the tables attached to the ministerial decrees 30/12/2002 and 16/01/2017 apply. The breakdown for the concierge service (including the cost of the doorman) is divided up to 10% by the tenant and 90% by the owner.

What happens if the tenant does not pay the expenses?

The administrator will contact the owner of the property who will have to pay the expenses in debt. The owner will then have to retaliate against his defaulting tenant and, in the most serious cases, will be able to terminate the lease for non-compliance.

House for rent: who pays the administrator

Thecompensation of the condominium administrator is borne by the owner of the property. It is the owner of the house you rented, in fact, who participates in the assembly and votes the resolution to choose the condominium administrator.
