There is nothing to prevent the inclusion of unfair terms in a rental agreement, but an owner should be aware that just because it is included does not mean that it is enforceable. "compensation" means that, in accordance with customary law, a tenant can make the necessary repair of the property and then "offset" the costs of his rents. A clause limiting this is unfair. Here are some simple points to consider when you reach your consent: legal rights always take precedence over those defined by a written or oral agreement. An agreement that states that you or your landlord have fewer rights than those given by customary law or the law is a fictitious rental agreement. The lease must be signed by all tenants and your landlord. If there are common tenants, each tenant should receive a copy of the agreement. In Scotland, your landlord must, in most cases, present a written lease. In particular, your landlord must submit a written lease if you are a tenant of a dwelling in the public sector or if you are an insured or briefly insured tenant of a private lessor. Terms that exclude or limit liability "to the extent permitted by law" or "unless prohibited by law" are also unfair. Not only are they unfair, but they are also not clear - the average tenant will not understand the status that concerns rental contracts of the essential terms of the lease (the clauses that define the rent, the details of the property and the duration of the lease) must not be fair as long as they are "transparent" - as above, this means that they must be in simple and understandable language.  However, they may be challenged on aspects that do not relate to issues that are at the heart of the treaty.
For example, the rent clause cannot be unfair simply because it places a higher rent than other landlords, but it can be unfair because of the nature and time of the lease. Any delay in a consumer contract must be fair. This regime also applies to leases. The Consumer Rights Act 2015 and the Unfair Terms in consumer Contracts Regulations 1999 explain the types of terms that can be considered unfair. An unfair term is not applicable and the landlord cannot rely on it when taking legal action against a tenant. Trading standards are responsible for handling claims about unfair terms, so you should contact Consumerline if you have any doubts about your contract. A tenant can complain to the local standard trading office about an unfair term in their lease agreement. . . .
