I got a lease in English. If it is possible to register a lease in English or if it must be in French/Dutch, as Aneesh says, if the owner has an official MyRent document, the lease is already registered. If he had not, he would not have had confirmation. FYI, MyRent is only accessible with an ID card and a reader, so the documents issued are official and valid. I think Alex is referring to how things worked when you needed a stamped copy of the lease. Not anymore, in Brussels, anyway. In the case of a short-term lease (i.e. up to 3 years), the parties may waive essential safety, health and equipment requirements, provided the accommodation is restored to essential safety, health and equipment requirements. In order to prevent the premises from being leased for a longer period of time, in violation of essential safety, health and equipment requirements, under the guise of a remediation contract, regional law provides that renovation contracts are limited to one year. During renovations, the landlord is not allowed to ask for rent. Many expats tend to travel frequently at home, and there will be times when you will have to pay your rent or bills, but maybe has no in the country. You may even have to pay a down payment or fee to save your rent before opening a local bank account or moving to Belgium. If you make an international transfer to cover your expenses, you should remember that your bank may not be offering you the best deal.
In the event of non-compliance with essential safety, health and equipment requirements, the judge will be able to cancel the lease in a pending proceeding if the lessor has been convicted several times for sleep in the past 10 years. If half of the tenants want to end the lease, the lessor has the option to terminate the lease, provided that it takes six months. Monthly rents can be arranged through specialized agencies in the short term, but come at a price. In addition, the tenant has the right to claim damages, whether as part of the claim for termination of the tenancy agreement, if the tenant can prove that he has suffered harm as a result of the absence of this information. In most cases, a properly registered lease is very well protected. Although you want to take advantage of these rights, you must be sure that your contract is registered with the local authorities. If you wish to terminate and leave, you must pay the fine described in the contract.
