Hello, I am looking for someone to write an essay on Rights and Duties of Landlords and Tenants Under UK Laws. It needs to be at least 3000 words.
According to Acts of Parliament, in all purposes and intents, during the operation of tenancy, the tenant or the occupier will be considered as the owner of the land and as such, he can perform any acts as any other owner would, as long as it falls within the conditions of the lease agreement and also according to contemporary statutory needs.
It is to be observed that tenant has the right to ‘quiet enjoyment ‘which connotes the liberty to benefit from the property as an “owner” of the property would, and it should be free from the unwanted intrusion by the landlord.
Further, tenancy agreements are partially contractual in nature. It is created due to an agreement between the tenant and landlord and can be enforceable by a court of law. In the case of residential tenancies, they are not only governed by contracts act but also partially governed by parliament or statutory rules, which cannot be nullified by the rules of the common contract law provisions.
Another significant point is that in the residential tenancy agreement, the terms and conditions should be construed as “fair” and are administered by the “Unfair Terms in Consumer Contract Regulations, 1999.
Further, it is to be noted that landlord attitude towards his tenant will also be governed by “the Race Relations Act, the Disability Discrimination Act, and the Sex Discrimination Act”. (Direct.gov.uk)
Under the demoted tenancy, a tenant will forfeit his security of tenure due to the antisocial demeanor of the member or tenant of the family unit. This has been introduced by the Anti-Social Behaviour Act 2003. (Martin & Law 163).
Previously, under Rents Act 1965, all tenants are entitled to proceed and get relief under both civil and criminal remedies for harassment and unlawful eviction irrespective of the fact whether they or not they are within the Rent Acts or not. .
