Buyers/Leasing Tips for Hong Kong (NOT LEGAL ADVICE)

It's In The contract

During negotiations the vendor and agent may offer various statements and encouraging commentary. However, those verbal statements are completely meaningless unless its fully detailed and documented in the Sale/Purchase Contract, it never happened.

For example, if a vendor verbally states that the air conditioning units are included, but it is not mentioned in the contract. If the buyer discovers the AC units were removed, the buyer has no legal redress.

How is that possible?

Because there is a standard clause in almost every sale agreement (contract) that excludes all past promises, verbal conversions, and strictly limits the scope to include only what is 'specifically' written into the contract.

Plan for moving out before you move in

It is said that hindsight provides twenty twenty vision, so its important to plan ahead.

Before you move in to a property, record and photograph the condition of the property, and that includes every scratch on the timber floor, dent in the wall. Yes the those minor details matter to some landlords. And keep it safe, perhaps attached with your lease papers. When you move out, if the landlord complains about the condition, and refuses to return your deposit (common tactic) you have the record of the move in condition.

When you move out, prepare a duplicate paper to record the returning the keys, with space for signature from the landlord or landlords representative, the HKID of the receiver, and the date/time. If the landlord is holding a deposit legally they should return it within 7 days.
