In certain circumstances, DCJ may offer tenants with two, five or ten annual leases that, when checking the rent, exceed their income limits and demonstrate a high and persistent need to remain in social housing, a two-year extension. For more information, please see exceptions for two-, five- and ten-year leases in this directive. The assessment of the change in circumstances after the review of the tenancy agreement applies only to tenants with a two-, five- or ten-year lease who are not likely to renew their tenancy agreements. The DCJ will only do so in limited and exceptional cases. Tenants must prove that a change in circumstances can be considered: the signing incentives are the bonuses that the landlord grants to the tenant, usually for signing a tenancy agreement or for signing a fixed-term tenancy agreement. You can include a free monthly rent or a rent reduction for temporary rental months. If the tenant violates the tenancy agreement, these incentives may have to be refunded to the lessor. When the tenant rents a room in an apartment building, it is very important that the agreement details which parts of the premises the tenant owns exclusively and which parts of the tenant shared. Five-year rents are for clients in need of housing and support, which will most likely continue in some form over the next five years. As a general rule, when a tenant accepts a temporary rent, usually for 6 months or 1 year, the tenant agrees to be responsible for the rent for that period.

When the tenant has emptied the premises before the term of the contract expires, the tenant generally remains responsible for paying the rent for the duration of the lease (provided that the lease is not in a jurisdiction allowing the tenant to prematurely terminate an early termination of a fixed-term lease). If the landlord can rent the premises again before the end of the tenant`s lease, the broken tenant is usually no longer obliged to rent, as the landlord cannot cash in double the rental for the premises. The document itself is not complicated, but it takes some time to complete it correctly. Be prepared to provide the following information in the document: landlord and tenant name, address for communications services, agents and telephone numbers of tenants. The form must include the description of the premises: location, type, facilities, etc. Also indicate the duration of the rental. The payment method should be mentioned and payment details such as account number, account name, payment reference and others. Ten-year rents are for clients who have current housing and are in high need of support, and are unlikely to decrease.
