A lease is a document that defines the terms of a residential lease. It does not only create the relationship between the landlord and the tenant between the people who enter; it also sets out a number of issues that the landlord and tenant promise to do or not to do, and it can set the rent for a fixed term. Under the Residential Tenancies Act 1995 (SA), a tenant generally cannot terminate a fixed-term contract unless the lessor violates the agreement [s 85]. However, if this notification is not valid, if the lessor is not served or terminates the infringement, the contract cannot be terminated. The lessor can respond to any section 85 notification by filing an application to the court to reinstate the lease (SACAT). The Residential Tenancies Act 1995 (SA) provides for many conditions contained in each lease (written or not) that are implicit, even if they are not specifically mentioned in the agreement. In the case of a fixed-term lease, landlords can only increase the rent if they have set certain conditions for rent increases in the tenancy agreement. In all cases, the owner can only increase once over a 6-month period. The landlord must give written notice to the tenant at least 60 days before the rent increase. Unless they apply for a waiver from the South Australian Civil and Administrative Tribunal (SACAT), the contracting parties cannot waive mandatory conditions, even if they consent to them [s 119].
During the first two weeks of a lease, a landlord or broker cannot require a tenant to pay rent more than two weeks in advance. After this period expires, the rent should be paid as agreed by the landlord and tenant in the tenancy agreement. The prohibition applies to the lessor or real estate agent who requires such a payment, so that the lessor, if he voluntarily chooses to rent more than two weeks in advance, can accept the payment [s 54]. Tenant Information The landlord must also ensure that the tenant receives a copy of the South Australia Rental Information Brochure before moving in. The brochure informs the tenant of the rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant as part of the agreement. If a fixed-term contract is not terminated before or at the end of the fixed-term contract (i.e. the tenant does not close and the lessor does not require the tenant to be terminated), the contract will be maintained as a periodic tenancy agreement. The duration of the lease depends on the interval between the rental periods under the contract (z.B. 14 days, monthly). If a term « fixed » is chosen, the tenancy agreement can be pursued at expiry if the landlord and tenant wish to do so. In some jurisdictions, the law requires it to become a term lease, usually from month to month, although this may vary. In other jurisdictions, the fixed-term lease may become an « at-will lease » or a « tenant with suffering » if it expires, which lasts only the length of time desired by both parties and is not subject to as important legal protection as a periodic tenancy agreement.
If you wish to terminate all rights to a fixed-term lease as soon as the lease expires, you must admit it correctly before the term of the lease expires, in accordance with local status. To determine whether a section 80 violation (breach of contract) has been corrected [s 72 (1) (h)] Both transfers and subleases occur when the tenant gives the rights to the lease to a third party. A sublease or transfer is usually subject to the owner`s consent. An assignment is made when the tenant grants a third party all the remaining rights to a tenancy agreement for the duration of the tenancy agreement. When a tenant transfers property and the lessor accepts the transfer, that tenant no longer has any right to the property or any obligation to the landlord.
