Official Gazette Commercial Premises Lease 2020
It is the time, which tenant and landlord agree, so that the tenant, mainly of premises and offices, can carry out works, apply for licenses or other tasks, in which the rental income is not paid, although the contract is already in force. In this regard, it is necessary to differentiate whether the grace period is total or partial. In the first case, neither the monthly payment nor the costs are paid, while in the second case the rent is not paid, but the expenses such as, for example, the supplies are paid.
In addition, you must also agree on what will happen to these changes after the end of the rental period. The simplest option is to carry out non-fixed works with installations that can be removed at the end of the contract.
Depending on the activity that we want to develop, some permits or others will be needed. As bureaucratic matters often go slowly, you can ask the owner for some time until the license is granted. Likewise, it is also advisable that the lessor specifies in the contract that this type of business is suitable to develop it in its premises.
– If you do not have a lease and you pay your rent every month, you are a month-to-month tenant. You or your landlord can end the tenancy with 30 days WRITTEN NOTICE.
– If you do not have a lease and pay rent every week, you are a week-to-week tenant and you or your landlord can end the tenancy with a 7-day WRITTEN NOTICE.
– You and your landlord can sign a reasonable lease that can be enforced by a state court. If the terms of the lease are not in accordance with rights guaranteed by state or federal housing law, the court will not enforce those terms.
If you break the rules of your lease and affect the health or safety of others, the landlord can give you WRITTEN NOTICE that if you do not fix the problem within 10 days, you have 15 days to move out or you can be sued for eviction. If you have fixed the problem within 10 days, the landlord may not evict you at the end of 15 days.
