Law Homework Paper on Tenant-landlord lease agreement

Tenant-landlord lease agreement

            The owner of the property is the proprietor and the individual who seeks to gain access to rights of using the property is the tenant. A leasing agreement comes in because it helps bring the two parties to terms of agreement such that the tenant has the rights to enjoy the facilities and services of the house while the property owner earns from the property through the rent. Any other party that could linger in the realms of the discussion pertaining to the agreement is known as a third party. It is worth noting at this point that, among the many forms of agreements that exist, written covenants are not only the most admissible in court as evidence, but also play a role in hastening the process of conflict resolution (Miller & Gaylord 114).

            In this case, the agreement, which is written and signed, is between the landlord and the student, Aron. The contents of agreement indicated that Aron was to use the house for a year (between September 1 and august 31). He, however, decides to assign Erica the apartment for the last three months of his initial agreement, a move to which the proprietor objects. The issue at hand is extensively illustrated in the property and real estate law such that through legally tenable methods. The landlord is right, by law, to refuse to accept the assignment because the law says; proprietors have the right to resent from consenting (Miller 189).

            On the other hand, according to the rules governing such kinds of agreements, Aron has the right and is able to sublet the apartment or sublease it. The basic requirement is that there is a deal, signed and still enforceable. By either giving the friend a room or the rest of the portion of his lease period but still remaining responsible for the agreement, both parties are able to settle the issue and the third party also benefits from the lease. However, the laws vary from state to state, depending on the jurisdiction, and may demand other elements to be included or excluded (Bogart & Makdisi 205)
