A copy of a private accommodation rental agreement for the rental of an unfurnished house or apartment in Scotland. Clause 8 is an optional termination clause for each party. Owners should bear in mind that they must not only send a notice for the exercise of the break, but also a notification in accordance with section 21 of the Housing Act 1988. The notification of interruption only terminates the fixed term of the rental agreement. The periodic rental agreement, which occurs automatically after the expiry of the temporary term, requires communication under Article 21. It is important to have a written contract between a lessor and a tenant in order to define all the responsibilities and obligations of each party during the lease. In this way, both sides understand and agree on the terms, which can help avoid conflicts and differences of opinion in the future. Keep it safe Once the lease is signed, be sure to keep your copy of the lease in a safe place. If you ever have to take your tenant to court, you`ll need it! Clause 4 contains the obligations of the tenant.

The terms of this rental agreement are in line with the legal obligation in Northern Ireland to give the tenant a „statement of rental terms“. It also contains a property inventory of the establishment which must legally have all rental contracts in Northern Ireland. The PRTs Private Residence Agreement (PRT) is similar to ASTs in England and Wales. You can use a secure short lease if you do not live in the property as a landlord. A lease agreement aims to protect the interests of both parties while ensuring that the property is preserved and maintained. Destination obligations keep the tenant in a comfortable home during the lease and the landlord receives a well-maintained home after the contract is terminated. Are they valid? The rental right doesn`t remain silent, so it`s important that your lease is up to date…
