Shorthold Tenancy Agreement

If there are common tenants, each tenant should receive a copy of the agreement. The rental agreement is a form of consumer contract and, as such, must be in simple, clear and easy to understand language. It must not contain terms that could be “unfair”. This means, for example, that the rental agreement must not put you in an unfavourable situation, allow a party to unilaterally change conditions without a valid reason or irrevocably bind you to conditions with which you have not been able to familiarize yourself. An unfair term is not legally valid and cannot be applied. A lease is a contract between a lessor and its tenants that sets the legal conditions of the lease. The agreement may also contain details about your landlord`s obligations for repairing the property.
