The owner appealed to the Obergericht (Landeskammer) only on the question of the jurisdiction of the financial transaction tax and argued that clauses 1.10.1 and 1.10.2 of the lease “ … a binding provision for the tenant that the rent for a given tenancy period will or may be higher than that of a previous period, so that the agreement falls within the derogation under Section 13 (1) (b) of the 1988 Act and that Mr. Brown`s rent cannot be returned to the financial transaction tax. This standard lease also contains instructions on its use and clauses. It was designed by the government for use when the landlord and tenant enter into a short-term lease in the private rental sector. This is a reasonable decision of the Financial Transaction Tax, but should be of considerable importance to registered social housing providers, given that Mr. Brown`s lease is based on the National Housing Federation`s standard agreement and is therefore widespread. Most of our social tenants have fixed-term leases that last an agreed number of years. If you are a new social housing tenant, you usually receive a temporary rent of six years with a trial period of up to 18 months. Two copies of the contract must be made – one for the landlord, the other for the tenant. It is the responsibility of each party to keep the agreement in a safe place, as it must be mentioned during the lease. There are also things that you accept as part of your rental agreement, such as: He found that the rental agreement contains a number of statements of general law that are only to the tenant information about his rights. Section 1.10.2 is a simple explanation of the effect of the general law that, after the first year of tenancy, the landlord has the right to increase the rent under paragraphs 13 and 14 of the 1988 Act.
Therefore, clause 1.10.2 has no independent contractual power. The ability of the landlord to avail itself of the legal procedure for rent review does not transform this procedure into a contractual tenancy clause, which then prohibits access to the legal procedure. The rest of paragraph 1.12 provides for an annual increase in the RPI levy in April in the year following the granting of the lease to Mr. Brown before and after, „a service fee based on our estimate of the amount we plan to spend on providing services to you next year.“ Service charges should be adjusted for the following year if it turns out that more or less „services for you“ have been spent; In other words, its lessor has put in place a variable pricing system. Yes, but both roommates must confirm this in writing, including confirmation of the person who will keep the lease on their behalf. If you have complied with your rental conditions, we generally agree, but we can request another trial period. In the case of a fixed-term guaranteed tenancy agreement, it includes either a contractual provision for rent review, or regular rent increases at predetermined amounts, or the rent will be at the same level throughout the life. The lease requires Mr. Brown to pay a rental and service fee and contains the following provisions for rent increases: the standard tenancy agreement is provided free of charge and can be completed online or downloaded and manually filled out.
