Decision making:

Once you have viewed the new site for your stall, then comes the time to decide whether if you want to go with it or not. If you decided positively then you need to notify the authority who deals with that property first, then, you would also need to consider perspective like financials and other fees, etc.


This is the stage when as a renter you would be normally expected to cover the holding deposit or a certain fee or even a guarantor along with an assessment of references and so forth.

Agreement & deposit:

The agreement is a legal document that has all the conditions and regulations which must be adhered to by both the parties and hence, it must be read carefully before finalizing. Also, the security deposit and initial payment is usually taken together and is mainly deemed as a legal requirement in most of the cases.

Understood responsibilities:

Most of the time, due diligence related clauses are added in the tenancy agreements, however, even if they are not then still, you are expected to adopt a civilized and sophisticated approach towards the keeping-up of the stall and its premises. Apart from covering the essential costs, as a renter, you have a constructive liability to ensure cleanliness, avoid litter, do maintenance and ensure all the steps which are needed to keep the place in a proper organized order.
