Rents can be freely negotiated.
The Rent Restriction Act 1984 which until recently regulated rents in theory (but not in practice) has been repealed.
A note: All land in Tanzania is owned by the government, and leases are only available to nationals. The private rental market (in the sense that interests our readers) is virtually non-existent. The rental market is mostly very informal and is actually subsistence (people forced to rent out rooms in their houses).
Where agents are employed, the commission payable on leasing a residential property is one month’s rent.
