Check your contract to see if you need to cancel your departure. A lease is a contract between a landlord and its tenants that sets out the legal terms of the tenancy. Without a written agreement, you can`t even prove the amount of rent the tenant owes you, and you may find yourself doing so. So that you, as a buyer, can keep control of the tenant and know what you`re dealing with (and avoid unexpected problems), the best course of action may be to require the seller to provide notice of termination of the lease under section 21. At the same time as the seller`s agreement in accordance with § 21, you can contact the tenant « without prejudice » to offer him a new rental. This can then take effect when the property is purchased, so that a new direct relationship between the landlord and tenant is created. If you create a new tenancy at that time, you can ensure that any deposit paid by the tenant at the start of the new tenancy is held in accordance with the rules of the rent deposit system. Our step-by-step process allows you to create a custom lease that you can design based on your specific needs.
