In most places, state law requires owners to be responsible for maintaining common areas, keeping them at least clean and safe. If your landlord does not respond to clean-up or repair requests, you may be able to get help by contacting the city, county or other local government office responsible for implementing building regulations, safety codes and/or rental standards. (Note that there may be situations in which a lease is not established – for example. B for certain family arrangements) An oral tenancy agreement is entered into when the following three actions take place: you cannot prevent a tenant from having a lease only by not granting him a written lease. As soon as they enter the rent and start, a rental agreement is created in accordance with s54 (2) of the Law of Property Act 1925 (which defines the circumstances under which a tenancy agreement is not required for short rents). Thank you for exchanging such valuable information. But I think it`s always better to have a written lease to avoid confusion. When I moved into my new home, my lease was entered into by Homeshikari, who entered into a very tight lease for me, and I feel really good now. I have rented a house for the last six months, but I would like to evacuate now that the owner does not provide water as promised, which I can not continue because I can not survive without. the owner says she can`t return the deposit because I didn`t give a one-month notification which she didn`t inform me of and we didn`t have a written agreement. Am I entitled to my bail, which I believe was the one who broke the terms of the 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??
