Regardless of your rental status, you must receive a receipt when paying the rent, unless you are paying into a bank account. The operator must make a disclosure statement before entering into an agreement. (Link in `Approved Forms` above) Subtenant The primary tenant must give you 90 days` notice during a periodic agreement or 30 days` notice at the end of the fixed-term contract. See Fact Sheet 10: The Owner Terminates the Agreement. Boarding or subtenant The lessor must notify you “properly” to leave the premises (for example. B if you pay a weekly rent, he must inform you at least 7 days in advance). If you can, you will receive a legal statement from the person who moved that they have recovered their loan. This can help you recover your loan when the lease ends. However, if you rent a local for less than 3 months and for a holiday, you should not use an accommodation rental contract. In NSW, however, the landlord is required to enter into a written agreement and make it available to the tenant. It`s important to know that just because you live in a place with five or more beds doesn`t mean you`re automatically a boarder and not a tenant. What matters is the content of your agreement. The Residential Tenancies Act does not really define what a boarder or subtenant is.
Some residents of pensions and flatshares were able to find in court that they were tenants and that they enjoyed protection under the Rental of Housing Act. If you are not sure about your rental situation and you have a problem with your landlord, contact your tenant`s advice service on site (see contact points). For more information, see Boarders & Lodgers Kit (see Useful Resources). It is recommended to keep a copy of the agreement to remember your rights and obligations as a landlord or tenant. Standard housing conditions in New South Wales are prescribed by law. You can consult them at: www.legislation.nsw.gov.au/maintop/view/inforce/ subordleg+664+2010+cd+0+N As part of a housing rental agreement, the tenant has a number of legal rights. These rights generally require the lessor to make the leased premises available to the lessee in good condition or to refrain from taking any action that could impair the tenant`s ability to use the leased premises. If the landlord violates any of his obligations by violating the tenant`s rights, the landlord may be held liable for the tenant`s compensation. Right to clean premises at the beginning of the lease At the beginning of the lease, the lessor must make the premises available to the tenant in a reasonably clean and habitable condition.
If the premises are not clean when the tenant moves in, the landlord is responsible for the cleaning costs. “Habitable” means that the premises can be safely used by the tenant as a home – that is, it is not likely that the premises will cause injury or illness – and that the premises can be used comfortably by the tenant. . . .
