The actual 'out and about' viewing with our consultant is one full day; the programme also includes half a day of research.

Follow-on Home Search

Should your relocating employee need a second inspection of a particular property or wishes to consider more properties, we provide another day of accompanied viewing.

HCR issue our own Tenancy Agreement, Home Search, Corporate Rent, Corporate Relocation, Employee Relocation - Lady Chair Q
A rental agreement for your employee can be issued under the employee’s name, under your corporation’s name or under KALAM REAL ESTATE SERVICES` name. Many of our clients have chosen to use our Tenancy Agreement because we have over hundreds of properties rented in our name using an industry recognised Tenancy Agreement (TA) - that is fair and equitable to the Landlord and the Tenant.  We act as the tenant and gives the employee a 'Licence to Occupy' - this document mirrors the TA between the Landlord and our company.  The main reasons why this Tenancy is used by our clients rather than an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) are as follows:
The main reasons why this Tenancy is used by our clients rather than an Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) are as follows:
  • Having issued over hundreds in the last eight years, the TA is fair and quickly adopted by the majority of Letting Agents
  • Our buying power allows us to reduce, or even eliminate Letting Agents' Fees and therefore,  saving up to BDT 30000 –BDT 60000 per property
  • We as the tenant can legally negotiate with the Landlord regarding ALL property matters
  • We will provide an 24/7 Emergency Property Helpline for every single day of the year
  • We has a dedicated Maintenance Team that keeps accurate records of agreed property changes to reduce damages' claims
  • We can pay the employees rent and charge back to the client
  • We can arrange for the most cost-effective utility connections to be paid by the occupant or client via HCR
  • We will provide a settling -in/snagging service for the first three months of occupancy
  • If the occupant has to leave early, the client can post another employee and the replacement employee can be issued a new Licence to Occupy with recourse to cancelling the Tenancy Agreement and accepting the penalties
  • In many instances we do NOT pay a deposit to the Landlord, but provides a company guarantee. However, some 'high-value property' landlords will not give up the right to a deposit - no deposit assists cash flow
Premium Leases
Budget 2009: Updated Information issued 22 April 2009

In his budget of 21 April 2009, the Chancellor effectively stopped the practice of paying a premium lease to avoid tax on the benefits of living accommodation for employees. The change in legislation will apply to leases entered into or extended on or after 22 April 2009.
From 22 April onwards, if an employee is provided with living accommodation where a lease premium has been paid of 10 years or less then the tax treatment will be the same as if the premium was actual rent paid on a pro rata basis per year. Apparently the new rules do not apply when a lease premium is paid when the property will be mainly for a business use and partly for living accommodation for an employee.

What is Premium Lease?
HCR arrange Premium Lease in the UK, pay rent in advance to secure length of rental period, premium leasing, corporate relocation, employee relocation - Smiling Cartoon House Q

The 'Premium Lease' is a simple concept invented by an ex-Inland Revenue Tax Inspector in the early 1970s in UK. The device dramatically reduces the overall tax cost of leasing homes for corporations.
The employer pays the total amount of rent for a set period in advance as a premium, with a peppercorn rent, instead of paying rent on a monthly basis. For example, a property is rented for a period of two years for a monthly rent of USD 1,800. The total lease premium for the two years is paid in advance, so USD 43,200 together with a nominal rent of USD 100 per year.  Only the USD 100 per year is a taxable benefit.
  • Huge savings in tax/statutory contributions, now only for premium leases longer than 10 years!
  • Discounts can be negotiated with home-owners for upfront payments
  • The transferee’s budget can be stretched much further; so that a much better home can be secured than under a regular leasing arrangement
  • Employer and landlord are committed to the home for the duration of the lease
Tax Implications

The set up costs are more significant than under a regular rental agreement because it is essential you consult with tax specialist and Premium Lease Lawyers.

Tenancy Management

Tenancy Management

We provide full support to your relocating employee and your organisation from the minute you wish to rent a specific property throughout the term of the lease - including the successful return of your deposits.

Tenancy Negotiation

Once the property has been identified, we negotiate with the Landlord and/or their Letting Agent/ residential/commercial real estate agents/agency/realtors in Dhaka, Bangladesh to:

  • Reduce all fees (such as Letting Agent charges, Deposit, Rent)
  • Length of Occupancy
  • Type of Tenancy Agreement (corporate rent, KRS`s TA or AST
  • Individual requirements and changes to the property

Our legal team will check the tenancy clauses to make sure the tenancy is fair to all parties. NOTE: Although a transferee may have agreed upon a property, there is no guarantee until the tenancy is signed that the Landlord will agree to rent a property to the tenant.

Accompanied Move-In

HCR advise on Tenancy Negotiations, Corporate Relocation, Employee Relocation, Tenancy Management, Tenancy Renewal, Tenancy Close Down, Dilapidations, Damages  - Excellent Q
Our Property Adviser and your employee will attend and provide an independent view about the Move-In to the transferee. At this point they will:

  • Check the inventory prepared by the Landlord and/or their Letting Agents. This will be amended and updated to reflect the true condition of the property at Move-In.
  • The utility meters will be read and reported.
  • Appliance manuals will be checked or ordered from the Landlord or KRS as required.
  • Appliance functions and operations will be explained to the transferee.
  • Area information on local hospitals, libraries, shops, police, tradesmen, etc. are given for living in Dhaka, Bangladesh
  • In addition, property management information will be passed on including rubbish (garbage) and recycling collection days, garden maintenance, etc.
Tenancy Renewal

We will re-negotiate with the Landlord or their Letting Agent an extension or new Tenancy Agreement to meet the requirements of your employee, with the appropriate break-clause.  On average we save 1.7% of the requested increase for rent.

Tenancy Closedown, Move-Out and Dilapidations Management

Prior to departure, we can supply a professional cleaner at cost. We will attend the property to assist the occupant in checking out, noting any 'damages' against the inventory produced by the Landlord or their Agent. Meter readings will also be taken.  We will then negotiate with the Landlord to ensure that the Landlord only claims for actual damages and NOT fair wear and tear to the property and furnishings.  This negotiation will be undertaken right up to the point that any claim by the Landlord is submitted to court.  On average our Support Services team saves our client/occupant USD 383 for every USD 1,000 claimed by landlords in damages.  We will recover the deposit from the Tenancy Deposit Scheme (if a deposit has been paid) and refund the client.
