I hope you can see that we do not disobey the rent law, but that we try to be as fair as possible and cover our costs and thus cover our costs by facilitating the termination of the current lease before October 13, 2020 and therefore by not paying a fee for your landlord. If you want to end your lease, it is important to understand the termination rules. If you sign up for your new rental agreement, you must sign a consent form allowing the Housing Authority to take and store your photo of yourself. For a common lease, they need the photo of each tenant. The lease must be signed by all tenants and your landlord. If there are common tenants, each tenant should receive a copy of the agreement. Although, in most cases, the tenant who leaves the common lease is responsible for finding someone to replace them, it is important to note that this is not a legal obligation and that there is no legislation requiring the tenant to do the same under UK law. This means that as a landlord, you should be prepared to find, if necessary, another tenant to replace the outgoing tenant himself, even if you have every right to ask the remaining tenant if he wishes to change the common lease into a single lease. The result would be that the newcomer would return to the field as a whole and that the standard decisions, as described in sections 8, 13 and 21 of the Housing Act 1988, would be applied accordingly.
If you feel that your rental agreement may contain abusive conditions, you can go to your nearest citizen council. The contract may also contain information about your landlord`s repair obligations. Your landlord`s repair obligations depend on the type of lease. Check your lease – it could give you more rights than your basic rights under the law. The lease is a form of consumer contract and, as such, must be done in clear and understandable language. It must not contain clauses that could be “unfair.” This means, for example, that the lease does not put you or your landlord in an unfavourable position, should not allow a party to change the terms unilaterally and without good reason, or to bind you irrevocably to conditions with which you did not have time to administer yourself.
