Rent a property in Mauritius: Rental Receipts

One very important aspect regarding renting a property in Mauritius remains the issuing of rental receipts. This is defined as a statement certifying that the tenant has settled his rental charges to the landlord. Very popular in France, a rental receipt is issued for free by the landlord, the document should include the following information: the address of the rented property, the tenant’s and landlord’s postal address, in some particular cases the administrator’s postal address (in case of rental pool), the rental period and payment details.

A rental receipts is issued in two cases:
1. On payment of rental fees by the tenant to the landlord (administrator in case of rental pool)
2. When requested by the tenant to the landlord (administrator in case of rental pool) to issue a rental receipt.

Important : In the case payment of rental fees is made and no rental receipt is received from the landlord, the duty of a tenant is to send a request to him to ask for one. The landlord has the choice to send  to send the rental receipt by post, by email (prior to formal agreement between the tenant and the landlord) or by fax.

The rental receipt acts as a proof of payment for rental fees to the landlord. It becomes significant in case of conflict between the two parties. A rental receipts also acts as a proof of address when it comes to administrative procedures initiated by the tenant.
