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.
