A full and proper rental agreement is the basis for a pleasant and hassle-free tenancy. The lease is one of the most common closed contract types that exist. These two interests are indistinguishable. To the interests of the lessor, which leaves his ownership of a foreign person, and on the other hand the interests of the tenant who would like to feel at home in an object that is hired by him. Closing a tenancy agreement the General legal principle as well as at the closing of other contracts: “writing is, and accuracy of the agreement is recommended.” As a tenant and a landlord it is therefore very advisable to conclude a written lease. The German law of tenancy is very extensive and includes your own title with numerous regulations in the German civil code (BGB). More information is housed here: Edward Minskoff.

It is not necessary (and most also impossible), that before the conclusion of the contract “Lord /-in” is all these rules. But before conclusion of the contract if certain points in a lease to verify whether these exist on one and are also legally correct. Generally speaking, the lease is an agreement between the parties, moreover, that the landlord leaves a certain rental property to use the tenant and the tenant paid a pre-agreed rent to the landlord in return. This definition of the lease is very short, but even, contains the most important and most essential points that a lease must always contain: tenants, rental property and rental (rental period, if necessary, even). Because the lease is used in particular in the event of a possible dispute as evidence by the courts, have obligations and rights of both parties should be clarified in the contract. Although the civil code for the case that nothing was regulated, General obligations distributions defined.

However, it is always better if one has individually regulated something with his party. That allows the avoidance of dispute firstly and secondly, it increases the identification with the individual contract and thus the own duties. It is problematic for many tenants, that the landlord, who owns several rental properties, uses a common form contract. He reproduced them simply and on each of its tenants out there. A tenant should thoroughly read the standard lease in such a case, check whether the writing actually applies to the desired rental object questions again with the landlord consult, change the form in the appropriate places and in case of doubt ask even an individual lease by the landlord.
