Adding A New Tenant To An Existing Tenancy Agreement Nz

If the tenancy agreement mentions more than one tenant, the lessor may indicate the termination of a tenant as termination of the lease for all persons. “I have a property that I`m trying to sell. I have a tenant in the house. My tenant is aware of the hope of selling and I have a few people who come to see the place on the comfort of my tenant. I got a request from the tenant to drop her rent if I want to run open houses. Of course, that`s not what I want to do and the feeling that open homes are all part of the sales process. I would like to know where I stand in this case? If you wish to allocate your place in the tenancy agreement, all other tenants must give their consent. You must also obtain written agreement from the owner. The owner cannot hold him inconsistently and cannot add inappropriate conditions to his consent. If the sales contract contained the tenant`s details, you agreed to take the existing tenant under the existing tenancy agreement. If you wish to negotiate a new lease, you are free to do so and the tenant is also free not to sign new contracts.

During the first reading of the law Faafoi said that tenants deserve to know why they are evicted. You can also ask the landlord to find a replacement tenant, even if they don`t have to if they don`t want to. Rental fees and key money are additional fees that cannot be charged to tenants. In this case, the rules of the law suspend the agreement, unless the difference is in your favour as a tenant. “Our current tenant is managed by a real estate management company (also a real estate agency). She has contacted us privately (through a mutual friend) and wants to buy our house.

Can we start this process without involving the real estate and real estate agents involved? The dispute was sparked by the tenant asking the landlord to take over a WINZ (Work and Income) supplier so that WINZ could advance the loan money to the tenant and the tenant could then pay back win over time. The tenancy tribunal found that this was the reason why the landlord changed his mind about the tenant and announced the termination only a month and a half after the start. Discrimination by landlords is one of the things that our rental right considers to be particularly serious. Tenants can claim compensation from the landlord in the tenants` court, but they can also require the landlord to pay an additional amount called “exemplary damages.”
