a small legal/property issue
Any readers have any commercial property expertise? Err, rather urgently? Exactly 1 month before my three yearly lease is about to expire the agents are trying on a massive 25% price hike. I am a long term tenant (more than 10 years) and there has been annual price rises built into the lease over that time equal to or above inflation. I've dealt with the agent before and he's not a nice person. Let's just leave the descriptor as that.
Though I'm guessing there is a glut of rental property in the Melbourne CBD, our building is consistently at high occupancy.
I don't want to be too high handed, I do want to stay where I am but considering the climate I think what they are asking for is unreasonable.
Oh and they know I want to stay, it was me who reminded them to renew the lease.
