My landlord shows up without notice to carry out inspections. What are my rights? If your landlord did not provide you 48 hours in advance prior to the inspection (or 24 hours in advance for repairs and maintenance), ask them to return after the required notice. If the owner refuses to inform you appropriately, contact the rental service. Tenants should immediately tell the landlord if something is damaged or needs to be repaired. The toilets are blocked and we can`t fix them. What can you do? In this situation, try to contact your landlord. If you can`t contact them or if your landlord refuses to do anything, you can hire a craftsman himself and pass the fee on to the owner. But you have to keep the costs reasonable. A tenancy agreement is a contract between a landlord and a tenant. It contains everything a landlord and tenant have agreed on the rental agreement.
Regular leases continue until the landlord or tenant terminates them by termination. Temporary rental: You run for the time agreed in the lease, neither the landlord nor the tenant can expire before the lease. However, like all contracts, if you both agree, you can change the contract. If you think your rent is too high, check your local rents on the rental services website. If you feel that your rent is not in line with the market, you can ask the tenants` yard for an assessment of the market rental. The court will assess what a willing landlord would expect, and a willing tenant would expect to pay for the lease, compared to rental levels for similar property in similar areas. For more details on the various grounds of illegal discrimination, see the „Discrimination“ chapter. Examples of discrimination against persons with disabilities by landlords can be found in the chapter „Rights of persons with disabilities“ under „Housing Rental: Access to Housing and Accommodation.“ My landlord refuses to repay my loan. What are my options? If you are unable to agree on the repayment of the loan, each party can file an application with the Tenants` Court to sort them out.
The dispute may be referred to mediation or, if the parties do not want to use a mediator, the case will be heard by the court. The lessor terminated the lease because she mistakenly believed that the tenant and her husband had lied about their work status and that they were indeed receiving a work and income benefit. The tenant took the landlord to the rental court and claimed that his rights under the Human Rights Act had been violated – the right to be non-discriminatory because of his „employment status“. There are no smoke detectors in my apartment. What are my rights? Landlords must ensure that their rental properties have functional smoke detectors at the beginning of each new lease. Talk to your landlord and let them know that they can be fined up to $4,000 for non-compliance. On the other hand, the lessor must give a written notice of at least 90 days on its intention to terminate the lease. But if she or their family members want to move in or if the property has been sold, they must only cancel 42 days in advance.
