5 months rent advance okay – Dumelo

Actor and Politician, John Dumelo has proposed a remedy for Ghana’s rent system.

According to the actor, landlords across the country must be made to take an initial rent deposit for five months which can be kept and used to defray cost in cases where tenants cause damage to the property they are occupying.

In a Facebook post on Friday, 4 March 2022, Mr Dumelo said: “Rent solution: Let landlords take 5 mths deposit first. Then they can receive mthly rent from the tenant.”

He added: “If a’thng happens to the property due to the fault of the tenant, they use part of the deposit to fix it. If the tenant misses one mthly payment, they deduct from the deposit.”

Currently, the Ghana Rent Act of 1963 (as amended), allows landlords to take an initial rent deposit for six months.

However, tenants are made to pay two-years advance or more based on the request of the landlord.
