An option to renew your lease gives the tenant the legal right to renew your lease, as long as you comply with the terms of the clause, especially the notice period. Be sure to inform you in due course and in writing. Notifications received outside the scheduled time may be refused by your landlord. Many homeowners opt for their own leases, especially property management companies. Now you have your rental contract you need to make sure it contains everything you need. When a special condition is added contrary to the legislation, the legislation suspends the special condition, which is annulled. The “residential lease” of the Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Employment (MBIE) is the most recognized lease and has been in operation for several years. In this contract, there are some empty lines for writing under special conditions, under the title “Other conditions of this rent”. 1. Keep the carpet clean at the end of the lease: clauses requiring professional carpet cleaning are not legally binding. However, tenants must leave the premises in a reasonable and clean correct 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 a special acceptable condition. In the event of an infringement, the lessor may, at the end of the lease, claim costs for damages 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 may reside in the dwelling. 4. Renters to ventilate the house and use non-portable gas heaters: This is intended to remind tenants that landlords and tenants have a role to play in preventing moisture and moisture damage. 5. Tenant to pay the call fee for craftsmen: the landlord would pay the call fee for general repairs and maintenance, and the tenant would pay for the necessary repairs because of the intentional or reckless behaviour of the tenant or his guests. The purpose of many special conditions is to explain the owner`s expectations about how the property is maintained, so do not assume that the owner is “up to nothing good” simply because there are many special conditions in the contract. The risk for owners to include many special conditions is that the contract becomes overwhelming and that the really important features of the contract can be lost.
The lease is usually 6 months or one year for a fixed period. Neither the tenant nor the landlord can terminate the lease prematurely, unless there is a break clause. There are three main types of break clauses: special terms can be added to a lease, but they are not enforceable if they are contrary to the standard term of the lease or lease. Specific conditions are generally used to develop a standard lease life or to make it a little clear.
