“If there are two people on a lease, should they both get keys to the house without having to pay for a second one?” – Hannah

Hannah, we asked Senior Property Manager at Nicholas Lynch Rentals, Heidi Sparks whether both parties should be given keys.

“This will vary from agency to agency but most companies will only provide one set of keys which is all they are required to do,” Heidi said.

“We will generally provide one set per tenant so that tenants do not have to pay for additional keys that they then have to return at the end of the tenancy.”
