A lease agreement is a short document that contains most of the terms of the original lease, but also allows the parties to make changes and renew their lease. With this document, the parties complete the essential information, including the names and addresses for the lessor and tenant, the address of the property in question, the duration of the new lease and any changes or additions made to the original lease. However, once a service contract is automatically renewed, all is not lost. Depending on the circumstances of entry into the service delivery contract, there may be remedies under the common law that could give rise to a separate right to terminate the service contract. This agreement is automatically renewed at the end of each term for an additional ten years, unless one of the parties gives the termination in writing at least 30 days before the expiry of the term in question. If the terms of the lease largely correspond to the original, a simple contract of 1 side may be signed by the parties. If the new lease has many changes, i.e. a tenant has changed, the landlord has changed, the tenant has moved to a new unit in the building, etc. a new lease should be approved between the parties. An automatic extension clause allows an agreement to continue for a defined period if the existing agreement is not renegotiated within a specified period, measured from the expiry date of the current contract. The extension period depends on the language of the contract, but these clauses generally provide that the contract is automatically extended for the same period (or a shorter term), unless one of the parties wishes to terminate the contract on a specific and predetermined date (i.e.
60 days before expiry). If the contract does not provide a time limit for the extension of the contract, it can generally be extended for an indeterminate period. Lease-to-own refers to methods by which a tenant can acquire the rented property. For more information, see this fact sheet: Lease-To-Own Strategies. The Environmental Protection Agency provides for the disclosure of lead-based colour warnings in all rented homes in the Member States. In addition, the necessary declarations and lease conditions will be based on the laws of the state and sometimes of the county in which the property is located.
