When it comes to residential leases, there is a great deal of legal rights involved for the property owner, landlord and tenant. Our legal advice covers residential leases and tenancy agreements, and our solicitors can advise you whatever your role in the predicament.
Whether you’re the property owner, landlord or tenant in the process of a lease, you must know and understand your grounds when it comes to a residential and living agreement. With the assistance of our residential property lease solicitors in Wiltshire, you will be able to learn more about where you stand and what the laws are surrounding residential leases.
A residential lease is a tenancy agreement between you as the tenant (or tenants) who pay an agreed amount of money to occupy the property belonging to an individual or business (the ‘landlord’). It’s essentially a contract which has been signed and acknowledged by both parties, being the ‘tenant’ and the ‘landlord’.
A tenancy agreement is pivotal in any case. Without one, it makes any case difficult as neither party made any written agreements in terms of their right with the property.
Any agreement for the habitation or rental of a property should be accompanied by a tenancy agreement. It should be clearly set out like a contract and display the key information, whilst clearly displaying acknowledgement from both parties.
Properties across the UK are most commonly leasehold or freehold.
Leasehold is where someone owns a property for a fixed term but not the land where the property sits.
Freehold is where the ownership is for both the property and the land. A freehold also means that the owner owns the land for no time limit.
