Nowadays, you no longer need to personally go to the population registration office, documents can be registered from home. You and your tenant can in principle decide between themselves the terms of the rental agreement, unless these are contrary to the landlord and tenant regulation (consolidation regulation). Please see examples 1 to 3 below to calculate stamp duty for leases on a tiered lease or a percentage of GTO. If your property is still under mortgage, you should obtain the prior agreement of the mortgage borrower for the rental of the property.
