Contents tenancy agreement
It is wise to enter into a written rental contract with your landlord. A verbal rental contract is also valid, but is difficult to prove. That is why we advise you to put agreements on paper. This ensures that no misunderstandings can arise later.
A written rental contract contains the agreements between you and your landlord about renting a house or room. These include the rental price, the method of payment and a description of the accommodation. The rental period is also stated in the contract.
So check the items below:
- Name of the tenant
- Name of the landlord
- The rental price (all-in or broken down into basic rent and service costs)
- The amount of the deposit
- The address and a description of the rented property (such as how many rooms, living room, bathroom, garden)
- The date of commencement of the tenancy agreement
- The time and method of payment;
- The date on which the rent will be increased annually;
- The house rules;
- The signature of the tenant and the landlord.
