If someone else shares the house but is not listed as a tenant in the rental agreement, it is probably a roommate. The roommates pay rent to the tenant. They are not part of the rental agreement and are liable to the tenant, not to the landlord. The Housing Leases Act stipulates that any tenancy agreement must be written and signed by the landlord and tenant and that a copy must be returned to the tenant before the lease begins. A rental agreement may be valid even if it is not available in writing. In the absence of a written agreement, the law may continue to apply, including all conditions agreed between the parties and compatible with the right to lease.

If you have a question about your rental rights and obligations, z.B. when and where you pay the rent, the care benefits for which you are responsible or how long your rental agreement lasts, you should read your rental agreement. If you lose your original lease, don`t panic: there are remedies. We have been living in our house for about five months and are still waiting for our copy of the lease. We signed it the night before we moved in, and then a week or later, they took our copy back.
