“Is it possible to negotiate rent with the real estate agents/owners? e.g. Secure a residential rental property for 3 years with a guaranteed 3% rental increase per annum, and agreed inspections only every 6 months?” – Brooke (WA)

Should I negotiate rent?

Rental lease negotiations can be tricky and stressful, so we asked we asked Principal at Ray White South Perth, Lisa Kerr, for her advice:

“Hi Brooke, yes you can do this,” Lisa said.

“Provided that both parties are in agreement with the terms and conditions and they are not in breach of the Residential Tenancy Act WA, then it can be written into the contract.”
