If the tenant and landlord agree that the lease ends prematurely and the title to inheritance is returned to the landlord, the lease is assigned. Among the conduct for which no discount has been deducted are: a rental contract is issued when the tenant`s interests are withdrawn from the lessor and both parties agree that they are extinguished. This can be done formally through action, but it is not always necessary. If the lessor and the lessee agree that the lease is assigned and that they act in a manner inconsistent with the continuation of the lease, the lease is issued « by law ». Capitulation without a formal act is faster and less costly, but it can create uncertainty about what both sides intend to do. Among the practices of the lessor and the tenant for which a discount has been deducted under a legal provision are: a discount can take one of two forms: « explicit » or « tacit » discount. Let`s look at both little by little. This procedure is useful if a tenant wants to assign the interest in a lease to a new tenant and the landlord is willing to agree, but prefers to grant a new lease. This is a common scenario, for example in shopping malls. Previously, there were technical difficulties in awarding all contractual agreements, but now this should be possible by the regional court.
The notification referred to in Section 25 shall be subject to strict time limits. You must provide it between 6 and 12 months before the end of your contract and if your tenant has already officially informed you that they wish to renew the lease (see section 26 note below), you cannot deliver it. Remember that there is a discount if the owners and tenants agree to end the tenancy. A written agreement is clearly the best way to do this if possible. From a legal point of view, such an agreement may also be implicit in the conduct of both parties. As the agreement is not in writing, implicit transfers are often open to grey areas and disputes. Leases of less than three years do not have to be established by an act, but this exclusion focuses on the creation and not on the abandonment of a lease; Thus, the best way to proceed with the delivery of a lease will be by deed, even if the lease itself was established by another method.

Disputes regarding transfers are rare and the vast majority of rentals can be concluded either using the contractual conditions or by mutual agreement. There are important automatic protections for tenants under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954 .1954. As a commercial owner, you should be aware of this and we will cover them before declaring the specific sections to terminate the rental agreement. If your tenant wishes to stay and you have not posted a section 25 notification (see above) to terminate your lease, they can submit an application for a new lease. This section is called Section 26 Notice or S26 Notice and is in turn written in accordance with the law. At the beginning of the Covid 19 pandemic, the government introduced a law that limits a landlord`s ability to distribute a tenant for non-payment of rent. Landlords must now terminate at least 3 months in advance before they can initiate formal proceedings to cancel the lease for non-payment of rent. This gives tenants a safe time to try to resolve the issue and means they don`t face a sudden evacuation if they have difficulties. For more control over your property and the durations of the rental, you might want to exclude these rights or agree on new rights.
