The tenant had a previous rental relationship with DCJ, which was deemed unsatisfactory or unsatisfactory due to proven anti-social behaviour. For more information, see Right to social housing policy. DCJ may also offer this rental agreement to people who in the past had antisocial behavior as an additional member of the household in another person`s rental agreement. Leases of two, five or ten years are terminated in accordance with section 143 of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010. The provisions of section 143-147 of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010 apply to leases of two, five and ten years of fixed duration. Periodic lease agreements (234.7 KB PDF) do not have a date on which the lease ends. They last until either the tenant or the lessor announces in writing the termination of the lease. A tenant is entitled to an extension of their trial contract for the remainder of their lease term (an additional four or nine years) if they have met the conditions of their lease for the entire trial period at the time of the audit. If the tenant is eligible for a lease extension, DCJ offers another four- or nine-year lease. The lessor must give the tenant a copy of the amended agreement and keep one for his documents. If the tenant is eligible for a lease extension at the end of a two-, five- or ten-year lease, DCJ offers another lease.
The duration of the lease depends on the needs of the household. The extension of the lease agreement begins when DCJ gives notice in accordance with section 142 or section 18 of the Residential Tenancies Act 2010, informing the tenant that DCJ has extended the term of his lease for a specified period.
