4.2 If the tenant remains in the property even after the expiry of the limited term and the parties have not entered into new leases, the tenant occupies the estate from the expiry of the term of term in accordance with the legal tenancy obligation under Section 5, paragraph 2, of the Housing Act 1988. For many tenants, a tenant`s career is an annual event. You can enter two basic types — solid and variable — although they can come into play if your lease is renewed. While some tenants are able to avoid them, they are usually an unavoidable cost for the occupancy of real estate and must be managed and planned. Your terms and conditions may vary from one rental to another, so it`s best to carefully eliminate your lease so you can predict both what will happen and when. When a tenant executes a renewal option, the rent removal clause can be structured in different ways. Some continue the terms of the current lease, so that if your lease increases by 2 per cent per year, it will increase by 2 per cent per year during the option period. Others have only one significant increase, and others rent the rent at fair market value or a fraction of it. This last choice can be dangerous, because if the market rent increases considerably, you will end up facing much higher rents, if you renew, potentially making you unaffordable. This lease model allows the lessor to rent each year according to the consumer price index during the temporary lease period. The lessor must inform the tenant of his desire to increase the rent by referring to the percentage of the consumer price index in the previous year. Some leases have a rent management system that is linked to an external metric, such as the consumer price index.B. In these systems, your rent will increase by 1% if inflation (measured by the consumer price index) is 1%.
However, if inflation is 10%, your rent increases by 10 per cent. It is not uncommon for these leases to be structured with a ceiling. For example, the lease may say that it will increase according to the consumer price index or 3 per cent per year, depending on the value of less. This structure is very favourable to tenants because you get small increases when inflation is low, but if inflation rises, your rent will not hold with it and you will eventually save money over time. After determining the percentage of your rent increase, apply it as follows to your base rent: some rental contracts are structured with fixed escalations. For example, if you have office space that is rented at $24 per square metre, the lease can be written with annual increases of 50 cents. This means that after one year, the rent will increase to $24.50 and a year later to $25 until the lease expires. Others are written with a flat percentage. A $24 to 2 per cent annual lease would increase to $24.48, then to $24.97, then to $25.47 and $25.47. However, read your rental agreement carefully, as the way escalations are calculated can be complicated, especially when it comes to rounding rents below a penny.
