Premature breach of contract If a landlord wishes to break an agreement prematurely, the tenant is not required to respect it. However, a tenant may accept early termination, perhaps for a fee and compensation. If a tenant feels that they cannot stay on the premises for the duration of the contract or continue to pay the rent, they must inform the landlord or real estate agent. A tenant who prematurely terminates a contract must pay compensation for loss of rent until another tenant is found and begins his tenancy agreement, or until the contract expires, depending on what happens first. At the end of the lease, a written notification of approximately 28 days must always be communicated to the other party if a lease is to be terminated. The termination must be made in writing; l Shows the address of the premises; Sign and date; l Let in the necessary period; (l) Speciation of the date on which the tenant intends or is intended; l Request to undress; and to justify the reasons for the termination of the agreement (if any). It is important to note that the notice is notified from the next day. The tenant can also write to the landlord before the 28-day period to extend the stay expires. Some issues to consider Lease agreement In the first place, it should be prepared an agreement written by the owner and signed by the new tenant. It is essential to give the tenant time to read and understand the lease before being invited to the signing. Additional conditions may be included in the contract as long as they are not contrary to the provisions of the Rental Housing Act. Such conditions are not binding or enforceable, even if the tenant can sign the contract. On the basis of the reports received by the Council, an agreement was signed between the two parties.
In many cases, tenants violated the agreement because they could not pay their rent because it was too expensive in writing. The Fiji Consumers Council has a pro forma rental agreement for landlords and tenants, which is accessible under www.consumersfiji.org What a rental loan is the amount of money paid by a tenant as a form of guarantee for the landlord against future breaches of the lease. Unfortunately, the law does not set the maximum tenancy requirement that can be requested, but it is generally accepted as four (4) weeks` rent. As a new tenant, it is important to note that the amount of the loan payable is included in the agreement. This amount cannot be increased during the lease, even if the rent increases.
