A housing rental contract must not contain incriminating conditions (unfair distorting a person`s right). It is unfair that the tenant is allowed to make the first visit after moving in. This can lead to disagreements over conditions and harm the relationship from the beginning. The relevant laws, rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant apply even if a rental agreement does not exist in writing. This means that a landlord and tenant cannot circumvent their legal obligations by refusing to provide their consent in writing. A lease is a contract between a tenant and a landlord. It lays down all the conditions of the rental and also fixes the obligations and obligations of the contracting parties. If there is something they do not understand or are not sure, they should get advice before signing the agreement.
The agreement must be provided by the owner at his own expense, unless the laws require otherwise. Owners must ensure that stamp fees are paid and that agreements are stamped. Who is responsible for establishing a lease? The lessor must provide the tenant with a copy of the unsigned agreement before it is concluded and signed. The contract must be finalized before receipt of payment and before the tenant rents in the rented property.
