Is there a cooling-off period after signing a lease? Does he have to fulfill the contract? People like you or me would say that it was a contract and that it would feel connected. Unfortunately, it clearly does not. Even in the case of a secure short-term lease, there is no cooling-off period, and even if a contract is signed, most landlords appreciate that when a potential tenant changes their mind, there is not much they can do, although some may keep a week deposit to cover advertising or rental costs. But I`m a little worried because my landlord`s circumstances have changed — she remarried and moved to another estate. I`m afraid she`s going to sell herself. The question I have now relates to the six months of the AST – I guess if I send him a new contract, he will do it again six months after signing. I understand that it must take at least six months and that I cannot change the form of the contract that is proposed to him. I lived in this house for four years and it is possible, although a small one, that my partner and I wanted to return to the house this year. A new treaty would prevent us from doing so by the end of the year. If I have to offer him a new contract, it doesn`t seem fair that my decisions are limited by the decision of my tenants – what if I were to sell the house, or if I had some kind of housing crisis, and that I really had to go back? Is there a way around this, other than to insist that the contract must be with the partner`s name? I have rented my property to a couple for the last year with a 12-month clause with a 6 month break clause. Before the end of the legislature, I told them that I wanted to extend the agreement.
I sent them a lease that they signed and returned before the end of the rental period. The only change I made was a slight reduction in rent to reflect the current state of the market. I am afraid that the officers are in law – legally, their departure from a common lease is not valid, which invalidates the entire lease. In a common rent, the tenants are jointly responsible – if the lease continues, then the remaining tenant is responsible for the entire rent.
