If you`ve never rented before, leases can seem pretty confusing at first. But don`t worry – we`ve put together the most important things you need to check out. A periodic agreement is an agreement that goes from one rental period to another, .B from month to month. As you may already know, many students often miss much of their deposit at the end of the lease. This is usually due to damage, but it is unfortunately true that some owners will try to get what they can get out of it. Most owners and brokers will ask you to sign a rental agreement. It is a legally binding document that sets out the rights and obligations of each party. With the signature, you and the owner have certain rights protected by law that cannot be replaced by the contract. Before you sign, make sure you understand all the clauses, so there can be no nasty surprises after signing. We always advise you to get advice before signing.

Their rental duration should be indicated in the contract and, as mentioned above, is usually one year. It is important to understand that you cannot walk during this period, unless you have a break clause (see below). If you simply leave the building, your legal obligation to pay the rent does not end, unless you have properly declared it.
Most students-in-residence have a temporary agreement. This means that you have agreed to rent your home for a specified period of time. In most cases, the fixed duration is the academic year. The rental agreement should also say: – What is the amount of rent, when and how it should be paid (check if the rent adds up and if no additional fees are charged). · – Information on when and how the rent could be verified in the future – how much deposit is and how it is protected (note that deposits cannot be of the value of rent for more than five weeks) – the circumstances in which the deposit can be withheld in full or in part, for example. B to make repairs because of damage to tenants – If you pay for an alternative system and not for a traditional deposit, should be fixed in the treaty. Make sure you check the provisions of the alternative system carefully. Note that your landlord must offer you the choice between a traditional deposit. · – The name and address of the property rented by the owner and tenants. · – The date the lease started and how long it lasted.
