Re: Re: Advice needed – rental terms

Fuengi (Andrew)

if you take a property for 12 months, you have the right after the contract is up to stay in the property a further 4 years (for a total of 5) by law. As long as you are paying your bills you cannot be removed. As most landlords understandably do not want a 1 year rental to turn into a 5 year rental without their permission, some right clauses into the contract stating that the property will become their main residence in X time.

If you do want to rent it for 5 years, tell her that is what you want to do.
