Announced by Brandon Lewis at the ReSI conference in Newport, the new landlord facility is an obvious measure to prevent opposition policy from implementing a mandatory three-year rent system for private sector rents. The first measure is a guaranteed short-term rental agreement, which can be downloaded free of charge by the owners. How such an agreement has “the advantage that homeowners avoid the need to leave real estate empty… It`s a little blurry! We are writing about the agreement. There are a number of clauses that we would have liked to see, but all the basic clauses also seem to exist. There are standard break clauses in the agreement that apply only to terms of more than 2 years. However, the agreement could be easily adapted to make them available in all rental locations. The model of this is a bit strange and gives the government statements on longer leases a bit lie. The agreement contains a standard break clause after 6 months of occupancy, as well as a three-month break clause. If the government wants to encourage longer leases, why is it prepared to include six-month clauses in its model agreements? Break clauses are more damaging than short tenancy conditions because they create a situation in which the tenant perceives a longer term, but in fact only has security until the break clause can be activated. This model improves things a little above the normal position, because the rolling break clause requires 3 montsh remark instead of the usual 2 and the 6-month break clause (which requires only 2 months notice) is a single, use or lose, break it. The usual tenancy period of the AST is 6 or 12 months, and most landlords initially rent six months, until the tenant proves reliable – a kind of trial period. An alternative is a 12-month contract with a six-month break clause. This is based on the principle that most tenants want flexibility in the agreement, the majority withdraw after 12 months or less.
For those who require a longer-term lease that provides additional security, the government believes that this has been agreed between the parties.
