No, if the landlord and tenant have already entered into a contract, the tenant cannot apply to the court for a new lease when the lease expires. Lease or license agreements can be written or oral. Oral agreements are as binding as written agreements. However, it is advisable to enter into a written agreement so that the location of each party is clearer. Tenants who enter into a contract with a rental agent sign a written rental agreement, which is a legally binding document. When renting directly from a landlord, however, oral rental agreements are quite common, especially when the landlord rents their room or property to a friend. If a person is unable to sign a lease, any person who intends to sign the contract on behalf of the person can only do so with the authorization of the protection court.  This situation occurs mostly when an adult with learning disabilities is transferred from a hospital or nursing home to assisted housing in the community. Normally, the power of the court must also be obtained as part of the signing of an end-of-lease agreement. The Tribunal has issued guidelines on how to apply for leave in these circumstances.
The cadastre only accepts an oral description of the land (e.g. B 22 Smith Street) if the exact extent of this land can be clearly identified on the Ordnance Survey map. As soon as a landlord gives access to the property to a tenant and accepts the payment of rent, an oral contract is concluded. . . .
