Yes. You must register the rental contract within two months after signing it at the registration office. If you fail to do this, the tenant is entitled to terminate the rental contract without giving notice or paying a termination fee. Registration will also protect you in the event of a dispute with third parties.
An inventory of fittings and fixtures is a detailed, written description of the state of your property. You will draw one up both at the beginning and at the end of the rental period.
- At the start of the rental period: the tenant and landlord must be present and sign the inventory of fittings and fixtures. Anything not included will be considered to be in good condition. The meters for water, gas and electricity must also be read.
- At the end of the rental period: before the new tenant moves in, the previous tenant and landlord must compile a new inventory of fittings and fixtures. The previous tenant does not have to pay for normal wear and tear, unless explicitly stated otherwise in the rental contract.
