The 100 standard tenancy terms in the Standard Lease apply to every residential tenancy in the ACT, even if you have never seen them before, or you don’t have a written agreement, or you have a written agreement that crosses some out or says they don’t apply.
Sometimes landlords and tenants agree to different terms or extra terms, either in the lease or verbally. These different terms may not be enforceable, even though you have signed them or agreed to them. For more information, read our Frequently Asked Question – Extra terms and standard leases – what terms are enforceable?
