For example, if you pay rent to a private landlord who does not reside in your home and you have agreed to a 6-month lease agreement, you will likely have a secure short construction contract (or an insured rental agreement in Scotland). The lease gives you and your landlord certain rights. For example, your right to occupy the accommodation and your landlord`s right to obtain rent for the rental of the accommodation. There are a number of FREE lease forms available on the Internet, but before using them, check that they are prepared by a lawyer and suitable for this purpose. If you can`t rely on the quality of the lease, don`t use it. Some lawyers and real estate agents provide written rental templates. The municipal housing advisory service, where applicable, may also provide standard rental contracts. .
