The main purpose of this contract is to determine the terms of the lease; The sum of the monthly rent The terms and conditions for payment of supply fees; maintenance conditions for the devices, etc.
The agreement is very important in the event of a dispute. Tenants cannot apply for a standard lease if they have entered into a lease before April 30, 2018, unless they and their landlord negotiate a new lease with new terms on or after that date. The tenant agrees and acknowledges that the possession of the unit at the beginning of the lease can reasonably be retained by the lessor until satisfactory proof of assurance is presented to the landlord. The tenant also acknowledges and accepts that a termination or termination of the required insurance constitutes a breach of the lease and may lead to the termination of the lease. The tenant agrees to provide proof of insurance to the lessor at each renewal of the insurance policy. If the lessor does not insist on receiving proof of insurance, this does not constitute a waiver of the tenant`s obligation to carry insurance and prove it. Roommate agreements are a way to reconcile everyone`s expectations. The best roommate agreement is how you never see again, because the writing process has allowed you all to find a clear and shared understanding, avoid unspoken assumptions and solve many potentially controversial problems from the beginning. Be as specific as possible, especially on issues that are important to you. The more you can anticipate potential problems, the better prepared you are to deal with disagreements. Anticipate all kinds of “if” scenarios and develop a plan to solve them.
