Lease Agreement To Be Registered

To reduce costs, tenants and lessors sometimes conclude an oral agreement on the lease and avoid the realization of a lease. Sometimes they also document the agreement and set terms for the rental, but choose not to save the document. This is due to the fact that both parties are responsible for paying a registration fee when a rental agreement is drawn up and registered. The lessor is also required to declare his rental income as soon as the lease is valid. However, entering into a lease without registration is illegal and could prove risky for both parties, especially in the event of future litigation. Deposit and token amount: the agreement must clearly mention the deposit and what happens to it when you leave the site. It is also worth mentioning the symbolic amount that the owner received from you. The Act applies only to primary-use leases entered into after 1 June 1995. Housing rental contracts concluded after June 1, 1995, but before the entry into force of this Act and which would still be in force on January 1, 2021, whether in the initial or renewed term, must be registered no later than January 1, 2021.

For any questions or follow-up, please contact Khaitan & Co at legalalerts@khaitanco.com If the lessor does not intend to renew the lease, the tenant must be informed by registered letter at least three (3) months before the termination of the contract; From 1 January 1, 2020, rental contracts for a primary domicile must be registered by the owner within ten (10) days of the start of the rental with the housing authority. The lease must be registered online on the www.rentregistration.gov.mt website. In case of difficulties, an appointment can be made with the department of private residential rental contracts within the housing authority. To make an appointment with a representative of the Housing Authority, please call 22991010 or email [email protected]. The bill also provides that tenants who extend their stay in rented accommodation, as mentioned in the agreement, are required to pay double the amount of rent for the first two months and four times the rent in the following months. Note that notarized leases are not identical to registered documents. In the event of a dispute between the lessor and the tenant, the court will not allow a notarized agreement as evidence. It is therefore important to have the lease properly registered. Check previously registered contracts and provide details of each contract. Company: The term “company” refers to persons who enter into a lease agreement for real estate that the company rents.

A “company” must contain the commercial register number. Visitor: the agreement must contain a clause on who can visit you and when. If the lessor does not notify the tenant within the time limit, the lease is automatically renewed by one year. Maintenance: The agreement must clearly specify who is to pay the monthly maintenance fee. Pending the registration of a lease with the sub-regulatory office, it has no legal effect. . . .
