"...The tenancy agreement is a contract between you and your landlord. It may be written or oral. The tenancy agreement gives certain rights to both you and your landlord, for example, your right to occupy the accommodation and the your landlord’s right to receive rent for letting the accommodation...."
Our agent must provide a Tenancy Agreement which sets out the particular conditions that have been agreed to. Both landlord and tenant sign it and take their copies before the tenancy begins.
We include the following details for a written tenancy agreement:
your name and your landlord’s name and the address of the property which is being let
the date the tenancy began
details of whether other people are allowed the use of the property
the duration of the tenancy, that is, whether it runs out on a certain date
the amount of rent payable, how often and when it should be paid and how often and when it can be increased. The agreement could also state what the payment includes, for example, communal payments
whether your landlord will provide any services, for example, laundry, maintenance of common parts and whether there are service charges for these
the length of notice which you and your landlord need to give if the tenancy is to be ended. Note that there are statutory rules about how much notice should be given and these will depend on the type of tenancy and why it is due to end.
Rent and Deposit:
-One-month rent security deposit is required by most of the landlords in Moscow. It is standart conditions here. What you can meet much less is a deposit which consists of two months rent, prepayment for more than 2 months.
-An advance rental payment is required prior to the commencement of the tenancy. A security deposit is also required from the tenant. This will be reimbursed to you at the end of the tenancy, subject to the details of your agreement and the findings of the inventory check-out report.
-We advise to keep all receipts from landlords until your agreement goes to status of a void contract.
