Tenancy Agreement Law

Be sure to include all the standard terms in the rental agreement using these forms: what a contract means and what the lease actually is can be different. For example, your landlord may say that the agreement is not a rental agreement, but a « user license. » Real estate that has undergone a « substantial change in the type of accommodation » is not subject to these rules – see « Substantial change in the type of accommodation » below. If such a change has occurred and if the rent under the lease – if it were to be fixed immediately after this modification – was different, as a result of the modification, from the market rent for the lease at the time of the last check or the beginning of the lease, the rent can be checked immediately after the substantial change. If a provision of the rental agreement imposes on you or your landlord less than your legal rights, that provision cannot be enforced. Limited duration – A lease agreement defined for a specified period of time (for example. B one year, one month or one week). The rental agreement may not be interrupted earlier than the date fixed, except in three cases: both parties agree in writing; special circumstances, such as. B the tenant is fleeing domestic violence, the tenant has been deemed dependent or admitted to a care facility; or ordered by an arbitrator. Learn more about ending a temporary delay for domestic violence or long-term care. If you think that your lease could contain unfair terms, you can contact your nearest citizen councils.

There is a distinction between tenants and « tenants ». Tenants are not considered tenants under the law. The occupancy of the room by the tenant is under the control of the owner of the house and the conditions of occupation are fixed by contract. In other words, if things go wrong, an owner can terminate a hosting contract without the need for a court order. However, if the tenant refuses to leave the country, a court order that cannot be forcibly moved may be required. . . .
