Checklist for students to consider before finalizing a PG in Koramangala.
Koramangala houses some of the best institutes and colleges for students. It is also well connected to some of the major localities of Bangalore like HSR Layout, BTM Layout and Marathahalli. Many global tech giants like Infosys and other startups have also set up their offices in this area. Hence, paying guest accommodation in Koramangala is highly in demand for both students and working professionals here.
However, not being aware of the rental rules and regulations; students often land themselves into hassles. In this blog post, Colive team shares the checklist of top 4 problems faced by students after opting for a paying guest accommodation.
- Local Guardian: Students are often denied accommodation in a new city if they don’t have a local guardian there. However, legally, it is not mandatory for adult students to have local guardians.
- Licenses/Permissions:Sometimes police conducts raid in the PG accommodations and shuts them down if the owner does not pay tax. Hence, it becomes important to ensure your safety in such a situation.The best way out here is to check with the owner whether he has all the necessary licenses/permissions required to run a paying guest accommodation or not. Checking this prior to signing the agreement with the landlord for accommodation would prevent students from entering into a situation where due to fault of the owner the PG accommodation could shut down.
- Agreement Terms: Read the agreement terms and conditions carefully before signing. Also, make sure to ask your Landlord about the consequences in case you wish to vacate the PG accommodation before the duration mentioned in the agreement to avoid any hassles later.
- Security Amount: The landlord has no right to refuse returning your security amount.The PG owners ask the students to serve one month notice period before vacating the place which is a basic criteria in most PG accommodations. But sometimes the owners refuse to return the advance security deposit and hence you have the right to file a suit against the owner for recovery of this amount.
