This situation which may seem very simple can quickly turn into a nightmare and many owners have already suffered setbacks from this situation.

It was not until some time later, following the verification of the references and the signing of the lease, that they realized that the tenants had given false references to them. The owners, in this recent decision, asked among other things, the cancellation of the lease because of lack of consent and termination of the lease.
