A new lease is the legal term for a property owner to take the property back.
It’s usually done by paying rent to the tenant for a specified period of time.
However, in some cases the tenant may be allowed to continue to live in the property.
The lease can also be for a short time, usually in between periods of tenancy.
The tenant is responsible for paying the rent and any other fees the landlord is liable for.
In some cases, the tenant will be allowed a short-term lease, which typically lasts for one year or less.
For example, if the property is used as a house and the tenant pays rent for the first year, the landlord can then move into the property and the tenancy ends.
If the property isn’t used for house purposes and the landlord hasn’t made a rental payment for that year, then the lease will expire.

What is the lease of a building?
The lease of land usually is a legal term to allow a property to be used for housing.
It is usually granted for a period of one year, which is usually set by the Landlord and Tenant Board.
However some leases, like the one in this example, may be extended for more than one year.
A lease of rental property usually has no fixed term and is usually governed by the provisions of the Landlords Act 1901.
A landlord can apply to have a lease extended for a term longer than one or two years.
This is referred to as a ‘conditional lease’.
The term of a conditional lease can be a fixed term or a shorter term.
The landlord is also responsible for any costs or expenses incurred during the extension period.
How much rent should a landlord charge for a conditional or a longer lease?
The rental property needs to be in good repair and the owner should be responsible for repairs to the property in a timely manner.
However a conditional and a longer term lease may be considered the same.
A conditional lease is a longer-term term.
If a landlord extends a lease for a longer period, the property owner is responsible to pay the rent, which may be fixed by the lease.
If this is not the case, the landlord will be responsible to cover the landlord’s reasonable outgoings in the period of the lease extension.
When the lease is extended, the new landlord must provide the tenant with a written notice and pay rent on the property within 30 days of the extension.
For a longer or conditional lease, the notice and rent payment will be made within a specified time period.
For an extension of a longer and/or conditional lease a landlord may be able to deduct a reasonable outlay from the new rent payment.
This may include costs such as utilities, electricity and water charges, and maintenance costs.
What should a tenant know about the conditional lease?
A landlord must give a tenant a written copy of the conditional and/ or longer lease, or both.
A tenant may ask the landlord for the following: A lease agreement, which sets out the terms of the tenancy.
A copy of any documents the landlord has to provide the landlord with, including: the terms and conditions of the property; any rent payments that have been made or will be required to be made; a copy of a security deposit, if applicable.
For short term leases, the lease agreement must also be provided.
If both the conditional or longer and the standard lease are in place, the Landlady’s Office can also supply the information required by the Residential Tenancies Act.
A statement of the tenant’s rights and obligations under the lease and the notice, if required.
A rent check.
If there are no problems with the lease or the landlord makes the payment, the agreement can be re-enacted.
The Landlord’s Office has the authority to change a conditional-lease agreement without a tenant’s consent.
What happens if a tenant breaches a conditional clause?
If the tenant breaches the lease terms, the owner of the house may apply to the Landlorial Tenancies Tribunal for a court order to force the landlord to make the payment or the termination of the term.
A court order can be issued by a judge or magistrate and may order that the lease be cancelled or the tenancy terminated.
However it is unlikely that a court would have the power to issue a court or magistrate’s order in the absence of a court application.
If no court order is made, the matter can go to the Tribunal for hearing.
If an application is made by the landlord and the Tribunal rules in favour of the landlord, the tenancy can continue, or the rent can be charged again.
How to make a claim for compensation if the lease has been breached The Landlords Office can help you with any claim that may arise in relation to a conditional tenancy.
If you believe a breach of the conditions of a lease has occurred, you may wish to contact the Landholders Office, which can provide information and advice.
