If you are negotiating directly with the owner and he does not have draft agreements, you can obtain a suitable draft lease agreement through Bigle.cz. Based on your requirements, we will create and prepare documentation that corresponds exactly to your needs, even taking into account the treatment of potential risks, which people very often do not admit.
If you have agreed with the owner or broker, you sign a lease agreement. Again… It is ideal to meet with the direct owner at least at this moment… if this is not possible, require a meaningful justification and submission of a power of attorney specifying exactly what the owner's representative is authorized to do (ie signing contracts, negotiating contract terms, cash acceptance, etc., etc., etc.) If you pay any cash payment with the signing of the contracts, request proof of payment.
If you are accepting the property for use, insist on drawing up a handover protocol. If the owner or broker does not have a handover protocol, you can use the services and assistance of Bigle.cz and you will get a customized handover protocol through us. The handover protocol will always contain the specification of the taken over real estate, the identification of the takeover and the transferor, their contact details, the status of energy meters, the list of equipment of the real estate and the list and number of handed over keys. In the event that you transfer energy to yourself (electricity, gas, etc.), the transfer protocol may also include a power of attorney for the transfer of energy with it and with a signed lease agreement, then you can transfer energy separately.
Don't worry, and if you find anything wrong with the property you are taking over, get photo documentation, which can also be part of the handover protocol, and write down any defects in the handover protocol as well… You will avoid many inconveniences in the future.
