What or how much is the fine. If there is a tenant renting a dwelling that is not of legal height and there is a fire. will the insurance cover it?
Also, if the tenant injures him/herself due to some fqault in the dwelling can they still sue the landlord.
Can I get the tenant to sign an agreement stating that they are aware of the specifications of the dwelling and they waive any such responsilities/liabilities to the landloard.
Even though as a cursity I have accepted this so you can get your money, Iam not satisfied with you answer.
I was expecting you to tell to what warning, fines and penalties I should expect from Brisbane City council. Does it just give a warning and ask me to vacate the extra rental spaces and only use the property as one dwelling or just comes forward and issue a heavy fine?
You asnwer is very general and does not give the confidence to rent my place as there are a lot of unknowns here.
