However, if your tenant stands by the bargain, you will have no choice but to wait for the natural break clause in the tenancy agreement (usually six months) and give notice to your tenant and notify Section 21. While this will be frustrating if you want to get your property back immediately, if you have a tenant who looks after your property and pays the rent each month, you are in a good position. There is no “cooling period” for leases. What an agreement says and what the lease really is may be different. For example, your landlord may say that the contract is not a lease, but an “occupancy license.” There are obligations that you and your landlord have that are not stipulated in the contract, but are set by law and are incorporated into all leases. These terms are part of the contract, even if they have not been explicitly agreed between you and your landlord. The contract may also contain information about your landlord`s repair obligations. Your landlord`s repair obligations depend on the type of lease. Check your lease – it could give you more rights than your basic rights under the law. The rights provided by law still stand in the way of the rights stated in a written or oral agreement. An agreement that indicates that you or your landlord has fewer rights than those given under common law or law is a fictitious lease.

The law stipulates that most consumer credit contracts must give a cooling-off period of 14 calendar days – in other words, you can change your mind and withdraw from the contract up to 14 days after signing the contract. In England and Wales, most tenants are not entitled to a written lease. However, social housing tenants, such as municipalities and housing companies, generally receive a written tenancy agreement. If you are visually impaired, the rental agreement must be written in a format that you can use, for example in large print or braille.
