Tenancy Agreement With Keys

If your lease does not say anything at the landlord`s entrance, section 12 of the 2006 Private Tenancy Regulation (NI) applies. This means that you must allow your landlord to access the accommodation to perform an inspection or repair, as long as an appropriate notification has been given and the visit takes place at an appropriate time of day. You must apply within 3 months of the announcement of premises that are not properly secured. Some leases contain clauses explaining the landlord`s right to Denertum. As a general rule, the owner cannot require your guarantor to be personally present to sign the contract, but will ask him to sign a copy and return it with proof of identity (usually a copy of a passport) as well as proof of the address. The form is also automatically filled out with your tenant`s name, the property address and the owner`s name. Signature lines that have been added for up to four customer signatures (you can add more if necessary) that provide written proof that customers have received the keys. Unfortunately, we can only assign the keys to a property when the lease has been signed and the first month of lease and security deposit has been received. If you feel that the house won`t be in high demand, then you may be able to get away with not paying this retainer – but you have to decide if it`s a risk you`re willing to take.

Suppose you have a new client who, after signing a contract with you, receives the keys to his new home. The structure of the property is yours, but the house belongs to the one who pays the rent. But you want to know what`s going on in your property because you want to protect it and avoid repair costs. What are your rights? Do you have the right to enter the property without your tenant`s knowledge or consent at your convenience? They would say “no,” but in reality, many landlords keep a tenant for ransom and let them know that they are entering the property for maintenance work or if there is a fire because they have heard the fire alarm or other excuses. Your tenant is dissatisfied with the situation, but you are brave enough to convince them that if they refuse to let you in, you have the keys to the property and you have legally and morally the right to enter what belongs to you, right? All right. Not really. You are indeed responsible and you may be in dispute with your tenant, and your tenant will certainly seek compensation. So think carefully.

Often, the owner will also be present with you in the accommodation to pass the inventory with you. If they`re not (or haven`t said they would), don`t be afraid to ask them to be there – if they`re there to discuss things, any lower-level arguments are avoided. It`s also worth taking your own photos of spaces and taking notes of errors, as well as making a photocopy of the inventory. This serves as additional evidence only if there are claims against you at the end of the lease. Students almost always include a guaranteed short-term lease for a fixed term of 12 months. In addition, there are two main types of leases that a lessor could offer to a group of students. If your lease does not contain information on who is responsible for the repairs, the standard repair obligations set by the 2006 Private Lease Regulation (NI) apply to your lease.
