During the entire term of the lease, the tenant must:
- Pay the rent and the running costs of the accommodation according to the terms agreed in the contract.
- Make peaceful use of the premises according to the destination provided for in the contract. If the lease contract is for residential use, it will not be possible to make it into a commercial space (medical office or… clairvoyance!).
- Take charge of routine maintenance work and rental repairs provided for by decree. These are mainly maintenance repairs.
To note :
Anything relating to obsolescence, poor workmanship or a construction defect is the responsibility of the lessor.
- Respond to damage and losses that have occurred during the lease. Unless these degradations are the result of force majeure, a third party (burglary, neighbors with water damage) or the fault of the owner (by not doing the work necessary for the conservation of the property).
- Allow access to any person mandated by the owner to carry out urgent repairs or necessary for the conservation of the property.
If this work lasts more than 40 days, the rent must be reduced in proportion to the limits made to the use of the premises. That is to say the number of days and parts made inaccessible by the work.
- Take out home insurance to insure against risks that have arisen in the home (water damage, fires, etc.).
The owner cannot impose an insurer on his tenant.
- The tenant cannot transform or change the equipment of the accommodation without the express and therefore written consent of the owner.
