Although an oral tenancy agreement is not particularly safe or intelligent for landlords or tenants, it is important to understand that it is still a legally binding contract and that tenants and landlords or legal protection rights are still in place. I lived in a house for a year without hot water, no heating, no double glazing in my room, my switch is in front of my door, a stove without lighter on it….. I told my landlord that I was tired of living in a s… Loch and he told me he wasn`t interested a bit and I told him I didn`t have rent, and he told me he told me I had to go down the next day. I didn`t get a lease from him when I moved into we had a contract signed for a whole year. After one year, the contract should be extended and signed for an additional year, but that never happened. We remain the owner`s property for almost 3 months without a contract. We have harassed him several times to get a treaty, and he simply ignores all our conversations. He read all of Rhe`s messages, but did not respond to any. We don`t know what`s going on. Nothing was done against him to be angry or anything.
You pay the rent every month, even if you don`t have a contract. HI My parents rent real estate by private owners in the last 2moths You will see the lease in the property for 6moths. The landlord then gives the keys and said you can move in today, so they pay him the rent and the deposit and they get no proof that they paid. Anyway, they now live there 3moths and the owner does not want them to give the signed lease, my parents are getting very uncomfortable because they are now afraid of having to leave one day and they were right, if we call him every day about it, he keeps calling him, you don`t need it and today he sends a letter “Leave on January because am happy not about that you want the agreement” Any advance please?? Verbel agreement on the rental told me um.leave after I lived for a year repairing the property and paying rent and was told that he to.me left after the owner told me and two other people the same now that the property is worth something and that all the final hours I asked the property .now to leave , I had no place to go, it was at home that I need help and know that someone money can help me, it is so urgent all I owen and worked to lose if there is no lease, then the landlord has no right to deduct money from the tenant`s deposit , even if the tenant leaves the property in complete chaos when they move. When creating the AST, landlords can add an additional clause regarding DSS payments, which states that tenants who receive DSS payments must give their consent so that the landlord can contact the board regarding their situation. It is also worth adding that the tenant would have to pay his DSS payment directly to the landlord, since the new rules on housing allowance stipulated that a direct payment must be available to secure a lease. The City Council will appreciate this additional clause, as it will also comply with the new rules when they pay DSS funding to the tenant concerned. In addition, other legal rights that are respected in an AST should remain unchanged for both the landlord and the tenant. Cases where the tenant has rights and cannot be forcibly evicted are common. For example, tenants ask the local housing authority to inspect the property if they complain of poor internal conditions such as damp and poorly mounted gas boilers and other possible escape blocks.
