1. Keep the carpet clean at the end of the rental agreement: clauses requiring professional carpet cleaning are not legally binding. However, tenants must leave the premises according to a reasonable and clean standard. The longer the lease, the more likely it is that the carpet will need to be cleaned. 2. No pets, only a cat, etc.: Generally considered an acceptable special condition. If this is violated, the lessor may have the possibility to claim, at the end of the lease, damage costs considered to be greater than the expected “wear and tear”. 3. Maximum number of tenants: Not the number of tenants, but the number of people/residents who can live in the property. 4. Tenants to ventilate the house and not use portable gas heaters: this should remind tenants that landlords and tenants play a role in preventing moisture and moisture damage.
5. Tenant pays appeal fee for artisans: The landlord would pay the appeal fee for general repairs and maintenance, and the tenant will pay if the necessary repairs result from the intentional or negligent behavior of the tenant or his guests. Remember that. Everything that has been agreed between you and the landlord at the time of your offer on the property must be included in the rental agreement. If it is not in the main part of the contract, it should be placed under the separate heading “Special Conditions”. The “Residential Tenancy Agreement” of the Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is the most recognized lease and has been used for several years. If you are not sure about anything in your rental agreement, seek advice through a lease. All conditions added to a lease must comply with the law.
Learn about the conditions you can add and what you can`t add. An option to extend your lease gives you, the tenant, the legal right to extend your tenancy as long as you comply with the conditions set out in the clause – in particular the notice period. Make sure you resign in time and in writing….
