It may grant the tenant a licence to enter the premises to carry out work, but it is not a lease agreement (i.e. a lease) per se and does not authorize the tenant to have a lot of rights to the property. The lease agreement usually has a deadline for the completion of the conditions, since the work or permits must normally be concluded before the start of the lease. The rental agreement also covers additional information on the condition and history of the property (for example. B energy certification, respect for property, asbestos requirements, etc.) and obtaining the necessary research before signing the lease. If the parties agree to enter into the lease immediately, a lease agreement would not be required. However, if the lease is to be concluded in about six months, the parties can reach an agreement earlier to give certainty that the lease will be concluded if necessary (and that the other party will not resign unexpectedly).
A lease agreement would also be required if certain conditions must be met before the lease is concluded, such as. B the lessor or tenant who agreed to carry out the work on the premises before the conclusion of the tenancy agreement. If we consider a common situation – a lease agreement that requires the tenant to apply for a building permit and enter into the lease, it depends on the successful granting of that authorization. What happens if the application has not been successful or what happens if it lasts too long and the landlord does not receive rent all the time? From the tenant`s point of view, she may have to do work on the premises, but does not want to pay rent during the work. An alternative would certainly be to immediately conclude the lease and agree a non-leaseable period with a licence (i.e. an agreement of the lessor) for the implementation of the changes. However, the downside is often the time without rental is for a fixed term (for example. B three months) and, if the work is longer, the tenant will then have to start paying the rent, even if the premises are not yet ready for the employment and use of the tenant. Therefore, it may be appropriate to enter into a tenancy agreement in which the lessor allows the tenant access to the premises to carry out the work, and then to require both parties to enter into the lease after the completion of the work. A landlord may insist that the tenant pay a percentage of the rent or the insurance and service fee contributions (if any) while he is doing the work, on the basis that he occupies the premises, but that would be on negotiation between the parties.
A lease agreement is a contract between two (or more) parties to enter into a lease agreement. The agreement contractually obliges the parties concerned to enter into the lease either on a fixed date in the future or after fulfilling the conditions set out in the agreement.
