Below are some of the most frequently used special conditions – feel free to use them if you wish! Many homeowners opt for their own leases, especially property management companies. If your landlord has agreed to keep a pet or pet in the accommodation, you should include a pet clause under the specific terms of the rental agreement. In March 2018, the RTA successfully followed a property management authority before Townsville Court. The court fined the Authority for violating the Leases Act 2008, including illegal conditions in rental contracts requiring tenants to have carpets and curtains professionally cleaned at the end of a lease. A fine of $6,000 was imposed with an additional $2,500 for illegally entering a tenant`s home. Now you have your rental contract you need to make sure it contains everything you need. If the owner accepts pets, make sure you have conditions in the rental agreement. The Residential Tenancies Authority (RTA) considers that the Residential Tenancies and Rooming Accommodation Act 2008 (the Act) adequately covers the clean-up and return provisions of the property to the standard. If property managers/owners opt for specific conditions, they should be advised on how to achieve this legally. Remember – a lease is a contract.

Special terms are part of your contract, so read them as carefully as the rest of the contract before you sign. It is common practice to increase your deposit – usually from 6 weeks to 8 weeks. The pet clause will almost certainly require the tenant to perform a dehumidifier clean at the end of the lease to ensure that all traces of pet infestation/hair/smell, etc., are removed from the property. What should I do if my leases contain specific conditions that may not be compliant? The tenant is conscious and agrees to repair any damage the pet does to the property. If there is evidence of damage to animals during the lease, the tenant must claim any damages at the landlord`s request. If a receipt is reasonable for professional work, it must be provided by the tenant. A tenancy agreement is a contract between a landlord and a tenant. It describes everything a landlord and tenant have agreed on the rental agreement…. The tenant is conscious and agrees to provide a receipt for a professional smart treatment (inside and outside the property) at the end of the lease.

If chips are available during the lease, the tenant must also provide a receipt for professional flea processing at the owner`s request. An option to renew your lease gives the tenant the legal right to renew your lease, as long as you comply with the terms of the clause, especially the notice period. Be sure to inform you in due course and in writing. Notifications received outside the scheduled time may be refused by your landlord. The Magistrate indicated, however, that the situation could be different if the carpets had not been professionally cleaned at the beginning of the lease, since a tenant must leave the premises only in the state he was in at the beginning of the lease, with the exception of fair dealing.
