Episode 3: What is a "Standard Tenancy Agreement"?



In this episode, we will explore the concept and details of the prescribed tenancy agreement for subdivided units.


We will explain the difference between oral and written tenancy agreements, and emphasize the importance of following the standard tenancy agreement. We will also discuss the potential conflicts between the tenancy agreement and the ordinance relating to the tenancy control of subdivided units, as well as the consequences that may arise from such conflicts.


Furthermore, we will discuss how to avoid conflicts between the tenancy agreement and the ordinance, and suggest that landlords proactively sign written tenancy agreements with tenants. We will explain how to download the standard tenancy agreement as a reference from the Rating and Valuation Department's website.
