EIS may be great for owners, but not for tenants. We gave them one months notice of our break-lease and made ourselves available to host open-homes. Our flat was extremely cheap rent in a great area (not hard to rent out). They accepted none of the multiple applicants (we saw at least 7 applicants) from these open homes. We were more than happy to bend over backwards to re-rent our place (since we were breaking the lease) we called them relentlessly (every second day) but now that we have handed back our keys it is out of our control, we simply must pay for their re-advertising costs as they take their time... all we hear is silence and the slow trickle of our funds disappearing. I don't mean to think the worst of people but I suspect they may be taking the opportunity of us being contractually bound to pay rent to make some improvements to the flat as the owners dropped around before we left and were talking about it. Three weeks (and $1000) after handing back our keys we are still paying rent (now in two places at once). EIS also require all tenants to steam clean the carpets at their own cost (around $200 for a small flat) which they don't mention when you move in. EIS left a terrible taste in our mouths. Considering renters are their bread and butter you would think they could make more of an effort to treat people with respect. I do not recommend renting a house let by EIS .
