Hello, I hope you can help me. I have requested that my name be added to the lease of the property, which is currently only in my mother`s name. We`ve been here four years and I basically approved BUT they won`t send the papers unless I pay a $380 fee. Sounds a little unorthodox to me. I understand that there could be an administration fee, but $380 seems a bit exorbitant? Is that legal? My tenant wants to transfer her partner to the apartment, so I want to include him in the contract without having to pay back his deposit and start the trial again. Is that possible? If a housing company or housing authority assigns you a dwelling, you are asked to sign a rental agreement before moving in. The agreement explains what landlords and tenants agree on when the lease exists. In Scotland, in most cases, your landlord must submit a written rental agreement. In particular, your landlord must submit a written rental agreement if you are a tenant of a public dwelling or if you are an insured or short-insured tenant of a private landlord. The rights provided by law still stand in the way of the rights stated in a written or oral agreement. An agreement that indicates that you or your landlord has fewer rights than those given under common law or law is a fictitious lease. You may also have signed an agreement that the property was granted under an occupancy licence.
That is not enough to make the agreement a license. If you want to make this change with OpenRent, we can only take this into account by creating a new lease through Rent Now. We know it`s not as smooth as it could be. Therefore, it is probably easier for you to arrange this directly with the tenants. Thank you, Sam. If I decided not to put him on the agreement and keep only the agreement between me and the main tenant, would I risk any rights to squat with him? Your rent expires in March 2020, so I wonder if I`m just waiting until then to add it or if it`s important to do it now. Your landlord can only charge you your rent if they have given you your name and address – regardless of whether you have a written lease or not. Prepare a period during which the three of you can meet and sign either a new lease or a legal change to the lease. Carefully check a new lease to make sure you are familiar with what remains the same and what is different now. A rent change must include the name of the landlord, the name and name and information of your new roommate.
