Tenancy Agreements

Otherwise, if you rent the property for six months, while the original tenant is gone, you will most likely have a secure short-lease agreement. Your agreement might say you have a certain type of rental – but the type of lease you actually have might be different. The lease you have depends on the facts of your situation, not what your agreement says. For example, if you pay rent to a private landlord who does not reside in your home and you have agreed to a 6-month lease agreement, you will likely have a secure short construction contract (or an insured rental agreement in Scotland). This is the case even if your agreement says something else. Check the type of rental you have. Your landlord can only charge you rent if they have given you their name and address – it doesn`t matter if you have a written lease or not. The agreement may also specify who to contact regarding repairs, rules applicable to sub-tenants, and assignment of your lease. The agreement may have rules regarding pets, guests, or smoking. The agreement may also contain details about your landlord`s obligations for repairing the property. Your landlord`s repair obligations depend on the type of rental agreement. Check your lease – it could give you more rights than your basic rights under the law.

The lease is a contract between you and your landlord. It can be written or oral. The lease gives you and your landlord certain rights. For example, your right to occupy the accommodation and your landlord`s right to obtain rent for the rental of the accommodation. The original tenant becomes the immediate owner of the subtenant and has the same responsibilities as a true owner. Your rental agreement is valid as long as it is theirs, but if they are distributed, you will most likely be too, unless you can agree with the actual owner. You and your landlord may have made arrangements on the lease, which will be part of the lease agreement as long as they are not against the law. You and your landlord have the rights and obligations that are prescribed by law.

The rental agreement can give you and your landlord more than your legal rights, but no less than your legal rights. If a provision of the rental agreement imposes on you or your landlord less than your legal rights, that provision cannot be enforced. A rental agreement exists even if there is only one oral agreement between you and your landlord.
