But the most important thing is not to let yourself be rushed to sign your agreement. You can request a copy of the contract at any time so that you have time to read it correctly. Make sure you keep a copy and don`t be afraid to ask for anything. There are different types of leases. For example, the lease varies depending on whether the accommodation is furnished or rented without furnished. As an international student, it`s the student furnished bond that worries you: it`s a lease specifically for students. It applies to furnished apartments and has a duration of 9 months, while the non-student rent for a furnished apartment lasts 12 months. Most landlords require every student tenant to have a guarantor. Simply put, a guarantor (normally your parents) is someone who accepts that, in the worst case, they pay your rent if you can`t make the payments. Never sign on the spot.
Once signed, the treaty is legally binding on all parties – you have no chance of changing your mind. Many owners of the Unipol code now use the Unipol Model Tenancy Accord. This contract offers clearly understandable conditions and is recommended by students. • Check the start and end date of your rental • Make sure that the name of each tenant appears on the contract as well as that of the lessor • Take a look at your commitments in detail (which you can and cannot do during your stay in the accommodation) and make sure you accept • Check the amount of the rental and who must be paid • Make sure, that the contract allows for general wear and tear of the property • Check all agreed repairs that your landlord needs to move in before/once you want to move in (e.g. B change of washing machine, repair of leaky faucets, etc. A joint lease holds the entire group responsible for real estate and collective rents. Most owners/agents use a tenancy Assured Shorthold agreement. This applies for a fixed period of 12 months; That is, it has a start date and an end date. If you sign a fixed-term contract, you are required to pay the rent for the entire period, unless there is a special clause that will allow you to terminate the termination (which is very rare). This type of agreement means that you are a tenant and you have exclusive ownership of the property. The owner/broker may have access to the property (e.g.B.
for repairs/inspections), but you should be fired and they should only call during proper working hours. If you are an international student, it is unlikely that a parent who is abroad will be suitable, as it can be difficult to take legal action to enforce an agreement outside the UK. . . .
