Laws About House Renting


Apartment Listing  

The Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act oversees the association between a landlord and a tenant, irrespective of whether it is for commercial or domestic purposes. There are primarily 2 kinds of residential rental agreements, namely oral and written.

In oral agreements, the entire agreement to rent out a house is finalized orally. There is no written or signed agreement between the two parties. In case of written agreement, the lease is subjected to a contract law, where the entire deal if fixed on paper. The details include the name of both the parties, the amount of rent that will be paid, location of the property, the time-period, etc.

A landlord must provide adequate facilities. Repair and maintenance work have to be completed in advance. The property should be registered and not face any legal issues. In case the tenant fails to abide by the rules and conditions that had been agreed upon in the lease contract, the landlord has all rights to remove the tenant with immediate effect. The landlord can also demand for monitory losses and ask for compensation for damages caused to his property. If the tenant wishes to leave the place for a temporary period, he/she should keep the landlord informed prior to moving out of the place.

The tenant also has certain rights over the landlord. The tenant can demand for a house, which is in a good hospitable condition. He/she can ask the landlord to repair and pay up for maintenance charges if the house requires immediate renovation. Receiving adequate water supply, electricity supply and other basic amenities is a tenant’s basic right. No one has the right to enter the house without the tenant’s permission. This rule applies to the landlord also unless there is a case of an emergency.
