Your responsibilities are usually set out in your occupancy contract and boarding house rules. Even if you reside in a non-declaring boarding house, you and the boardinghouse owner may voluntarily enter into an agreement containing some or all of the principles of occupancy set out in the law. This model law reform creates a system of enforceable agreements for all tenants who are not covered by the current rental legislation and a procedure to create specific standard conditions established according to the different conditions of the class of accommodation to which it applies. An occupancy contract must be signed when a person moves into a new home. The main purpose of using this agreement is to set certain conditions between the two parties. The person in charge of the accommodation will communicate all the responsibilities and rights of the tenant through the occupancy contract. In any case, what is “appropriate” may depend on the circumstances of the agreement and the type of accommodation offered. An occupancy contract is a contract between you and the pension. Boarding owners are legally required to enter into a written occupancy agreement with you, but if the landlord does not, your rights are still protected by law and you can enforce them. It`s a good idea to ask for a written occupancy agreement, as it makes it easier for you to understand your rights and obligations. A standard occupancy contract (PDF, 509.09 KB) has been developed for boarding owners and residents, which they can use at their own choice.
Two standard conditions have been developed by the SAAP sector, in consultation with representatives of SAAP`s customers: one for overnight stays, the other for longer-term accommodation. There are some rights to occupy houses that may or may not be exclusive. This means that, in some cases, the occupant has the right to lock the premises and not to allow the licensor to enter the premises and, in some cases, this right is not granted to the occupant. Thus, the occupancy contract may or may not give the occupant the rights to use facilities such as furniture or other goods. There are certain places where the occupancy contract cannot be imposed, such as for example. B villages for the elderly, state-subsidised housing, etc. The person who signed the occupancy contract and resides in the house is designated as the occupant and the person who owns the house in which the occupant resides is designated as the licensor. If we compare the occupancy contract with the lease, the lease refers to the person who lives in the house by paying the rent as a tenant and the person who owns the house as the lessor. If you are a boarder, you must sign a written contract called an occupancy contract. This agreement gives you security over your legal rights and obligations and also provides for notice periods for rent increases and eviction notices. This provision would allow both parties to obtain relatively inexpensive, timely and accessible dispute resolution procedures from consumer, business and tenant courts.
It is important to remember that the terms of the occupation agreement must not be incompatible with the principles of occupation. . . .
