Watch out for loopholes in the lease termination agreement

Although the law does not provide for any special provisions on the agreement on termination of the lease agreement for an apartment, it is nevertheless possible to terminate the lease of an apartment by such an agreement. After all, all private law is based on the agreement of the parties involved.

From law practice: Omission of a clause to settle all claims

We were contacted by Ms. Saša with a problem concerning a seemingly small omission, which could have had far-reaching consequences. She had entered into a lease termination agreement and thought she could forget about the small old flat she had left and enjoy her new flat with its large terrace and herb beds.

However,when the agreement was concluded, she forgot to insist on a clause concerning possible further claims by the landlord, stating that all claims were settled. She almost got even when the sly landlord suddenly demanded the last rent back twice. We stood up for Mrs Sasha and, thanks to circumstantial evidence, he was convicted of lying and withdrew his claim completely.

What to look out for when entering into an agreement to terminate a lease on an apartment?

    1. Put the agreement in writing, as the law requires, because the lease for the apartment must also be in writing.
    2. Label the pages of the document correctly.
    3. Correctly identify the apartment to which the agreement relates.
    4. Include in the written agreement all the rights of both parties – the continuing and the agreed parties.
    5. Include in the agreement both how the rest of the rent will be paid and how the security deposit will be returned to you.

What if you don’t make a deal?

Under the latest legislation, if the tenant leaves the flat in such a way that the tenancy can be deemed to have ended without any doubt, which in practice means that they move out without first agreeing with the landlord, the flat is deemed to have been surrendered immediately. The Explanatory Memorandum does not elaborate on this provision and its application in practice will therefore depend on how the courts treat it. However, it is such a de facto termination.

before 3 years

I am giving both the website and service provided my very highest rating. Dostupný advokát found a hidden risk in my contract for the transfer of an apartment, which would have cost me tons of money.

My boyfriend and I had the lease contract for our first apartment checked by Dostupný advokát and were glad to learn about our rights, and all the steps we needed to take.

Your reputation is well deserved. All our contracts were done quickly and accurately. In addition, Dostupný advokát explained the legal regulations for our property easement, which I found critical to our success because as a layman I had no idea what problems that could cause us. I have no suggestions for improving your service, because (zobrazit více) I am completely satisfied.
