Realtors recommend again to write all the terms of the lease in the contract of employment, an estimate and sign it, and at the end of the work endorse the act of acceptance of works and no claims. “The agreement in the oral form has no legal force, if necessary, the tenant will not be able to prove the legitimacy of his free stay in the apartment and that there is agreement on carrying out of repair work. As a resultthe tenant runs the risk of incurring significant losses,” – emphasizes Polyakov.
