Hello! My friend and I rented a room, not a written contract, and we`ve been there for a few months. When we left the owner, he did not return the deposit, and he still hesitates on the pretext that he has no money, there is anyway that I can claim it? My friend was unemployed and we always paid the rent every month on time, we left the premises to pay the deposit elsewhere and after more than a month, the landlord still does not return the deposit. When creating the AST, landlords can add an additional clause regarding DSS payments, which states that tenants who receive DSS payments must give their consent so that the landlord can contact the board regarding their situation. It is also worth adding that the tenant would have to pay his DSS payment directly to the landlord, since the new rules on housing allowance stipulated that a direct payment must be available to secure a lease. The City Council will appreciate this additional clause, as it will also comply with the new rules when they pay DSS funding to the tenant concerned. In addition, other legal rights that are respected in an AST should remain unchanged for both the landlord and the tenant. The fact that a landlord or tenant does not have a written tenancy agreement does not affect any of their legal rights. Both parties are still protected by law or by law. What are the legal responsibilities of an owner? Can a tenant deny access to a landlord? Do you have to pay rent if there is no rent? Is there a situation where a tenant can withhold rent? How long does an owner have to repair? What if your landlord doesn`t fix anything? Can an owner fire you? How many redundancies does a landlord have to give a tenant to move? How much notice do I need to give my landlord before I move? Can a landlord evict you for rent delay? Can a landlord evict you if there is no lease? How long does it take for a landlord to evict a tenant? Can an owner take legal action after being evacuated? Can you sue an owner for injuries? Is an owner responsible for property damage? Is an owner responsible for mold? What is considered harassment by an owner? When do I need a lawyer? Who is responsible for the maintenance of common areas in my building? Can my landlord force the evacuation by disconnecting services from my home? Can a landlord refuse to rent me because I have children? Hello, I`m a “school buddy” tenant who doesn`t pay in their rent on time.
