Many people rent out their houses, either a part of it or the entire house. In case the Owner and the tenant reside in the same building, then one must follow the Vastu Guidelines for Renting out a House.
Here, I have explained the Vastu Guidelines for Renting out. Since Vastu is a science, every guideline is based on logic and scientific reasoning. As an Architect, I have attempted to explain these guidelines rationally and scientifically, so that you can decide what you want to follow and what you don’t.
ACCORDING TO VASTU, WHAT SHOULD YOU CONSIDER WHEN YOU GIVE A PLACE FOR RENT?
If the owner and the tenant reside in the same building, then the owner must reside on the upper floor: The Owner should always occupy a floor above the floor occupied by the tenant. The Logic – Always, one feels in control, if one is watching everything from above. If the owner is staying below, and rents out the upper floor, he may not be able to keep a track of the tenant’s activities.
If the owner and the tenant reside on the same floor, then the owner must reside in the South or West portion of the house: And only the North and East portion can be rented out. Similarly, even an outhouse in the South-West of the house must never be rented out as the tenant may become dominant. The Logic – According to the cardinal directions and the Sun’s effects, Vastu recommends that the South, West and South-West should be reserved for the Bedrooms, Toilets and other private areas. So by renting out a part of the house in this sector, the privacy of the owner is bound to be jeopardized.
Even if only one room is rented out, it should be in the North or East: And never in the South or West portion of the house. The Logic – It is not worth renting out a room if it is going to make the owner conscious of his private space. But all these guidelines hold true, only if the Owner’s bedrooms and private areas are near or below a tenant’s space.
