Tenants can immediately breach their lease, especially if the lessor has not previously consented to the subletting of the property. Landlords may also breach the terms of their main lease agreement if they rent out a property under inheritance law. In addition, listing a property on Airbnb can result in violations of planning rights and violate building permits. A tenant who hosts on Airbnb can also open the lessor to the possible invalidity of the insurance policies and the violation of the conditions of their borrower`s authorization to rent the property. Private rooms – unless you live in the property (as for the tenants above) – this will normally be a lease since the resident has an « exclusive use » of the room. In some circumstances, for example, if you offer cleaning services where cleaning agents (or you) only regularly enter if they are not there, it will likely be a license. The Housing Act 1988 is the most important legislation governing housing rental contracts. A lease agreement granted to a person who lives in a property as a principal residence is by default an AST, which means that all rules and regulations applicable to regular long-term leases also apply to short-term rentals. Also note that this is a license if you cannot be the subject of a contract to rent a boat – such as a houseboat – as a boat (which is not a country).
Secure Tenancy – This is the « standard » type of tenancy that is created (under the Housing Act 1988), unless one of the exceptions applies. A user license is a personal agreement between the licensor and the user (licensee) under which the licensor authorizes the licensee to use the premises for a short period of time, usually six or 12 months. Whether you have a license or a rental agreement, you can`t determine it by simply agreeing with the tenant or putting it on the document they sign. Or by the wording in the advertisement with which the occupant was found. It depends on the circumstances of the rental. It may also be worth considering that a court might consider the agreement as something other than an AST, especially if the tenant mentioned does not live or has ever lived in the property as a principal residence. Also consider sending a notice or expiration letter to cover all bases.. . .
