Licensed Tenancy Agreements

Oral agreements can be more difficult to enforce in the event of a dispute. In some recent cases, „licensing agreements“ have been awarded to tenants in a common building. The real estate broker had thus executed the agreements in order to give himself more opportunities to manage the sharing of breakdowns and antisocial behaviour, believing that the reference to the occupants as licensees meant that the detainees could be called to leave with only a few days notice, instead of having a right to that right. to be properly informed in writing. Housing Rights referred these cases to the Landratsamt Public Health Department, which agreed that residents should be exclusively in possession of defined premises and, as such, tenants entitled to at least 28 days` notice. The Council contacted the officers who agreed to reinstate the detainees instead of answering criminally for illegal deportation. The risks to officers go beyond the threat of prosecution under the rent control provisions. Consumer protection legislation can also be applied to agents who act in this way, with a London agent fined more than $20 million last year for establishing fictitious licensing agreements. In this case, the tenants affected by this practice received compensation of 3000 $US. It should also be noted that a licence does not confer interest on the land, as it is not subject to stamp duty. However, it would be unnecessary to label a document as a license for the sole purpose of avoiding stamp duty. Whether a document creates a lease or licence does not depend on the name of the document or any other label indicated by the parties, but on the actual nature of the rights and obligations, as the agreement demonstrates. An important factor in distinguishing between a rental agreement and a license is whether the user has the property exclusively.

Subject to different facts from one case to another, the law generally accepts that the granting of exclusive employment (the user may occupy the property exclusively and privately) creates a lease agreement for a period of time for periodic payments. If a person is unable to sign a rental agreement, anyone who intends to sign the agreement on behalf of the person can only do so with the permission of the Court.

As a general rule, the jurisdiction of the Court of Justice must also be sought as part of the signing of an agreement to terminate the lease. The Safeguarding Tribunal has issued guidelines for granting an application for leave in these circumstances.
