Western Australia Tenancy Agreement

If you are a tenant with questions about your rental agreement and need a lawyer, please contact Tenancy WA (now Circle Green Community Legal). Signing incentives are bonuses given by the landlord to the tenant, usually for signing a tenancy agreement or signing a fixed-term tenancy agreement. You can include a free monthly rent or a rent reduction for temporary rental months. If the tenant violates the tenancy agreement, these incentives may have to be refunded to the lessor. The lessor`s obligations are defined by the conditions contained in the lease and by the specific laws for the location of the property. One of the landlord`s most important duties is to allow the tenant access to the property and to allow the tenant to enjoy the property peacefully. The rightful owner of the property also has an obligation to keep the property at a minimum level. There is no minimum or maximum duration of the agreement under the Western Australia Act. If a term “fixed” is chosen, the tenancy agreement can be pursued at expiry if the landlord and tenant wish to do so.

In some jurisdictions, the law requires it to become a term lease, usually from month to month, although this may vary. In other jurisdictions, the fixed-term lease may become an “at-will lease” or a “tenant with suffering” if it expires, which lasts only the length of time desired by both parties and is not subject to as important legal protection as a periodic tenancy agreement. If you wish to terminate all rights to a fixed-term lease as soon as the lease expires, you must admit it correctly before the term of the lease expires, in accordance with local status. The expiry of the lease does not necessarily end the lease. If a “periodic” term is chosen, the lease is automatically renewed on the same terms as the first lease, unless it is amended by a formal termination, in accordance with the law. A one-year “periodic monthly lease” is therefore in fact 12 separate leases, automatically renewed. The lease is automatically renewed until one of the parties wishes to terminate the lease (by a correct termination, as required by law). If you sign a rental agreement, you contractually agree to pay the rent to the landlord. This is a legal obligation that the courts take seriously. You may be liable to the landlord for the landlord not paying the rent, even if you have a good reason for not being able to take possession.
