All rental accommodations must be a decent, safe and comfortable standard. As a private tenant, you will usually receive a guaranteed short-term rental contract for six months, the property can be furnished or unfurnished. Always check your rental agreement carefully, as you may be responsible for paying water prices or other charges. At the end of the fixed tenancy period, your lease becomes a “periodic lease” in which you have the right to continue to reside in the property and all the terms of your original contract are maintained. Your landlord can also give you another fixed-term lease. If you want to leave the accommodation, inform the landlord four weeks in advance.

Many landlords require this to ensure that the tenant does not damage the property. Your landlord must provide you with a rental agreement if you agree to rent your property.

Leases are usually insured shorthold and must have an initial fixed term of at least six (6) months, although this may be longer than if your landlord prefers it. Your landlord should give you a copy of the agreement and keep a copy for yourself.
Citizens Advice will be able to pass the agreement with you if you need advice before accepting the lease. When the owner provides a rental contract, you should carefully check the parts on the responsibility for repairs and the list of furniture.
