Include a covid clause in student apartment rentals

As we welcome in the month of September when university students look for apartment rentals to share the covid-19 pandemic is causing great uncertainty since it is not known if university classes will be presential, semi-presential or, on the contrary online.

Under these conditions with the fulfillment of rental contracts it is convenient to include a covid-19 clause, that is, a clause that provides details on how to adapt the contract in the event of a new confinement.

The past confinement generated non-compliance, defaults and other kinds of conflicts regarding the rentals of students.

Therefore, given the uncertainty of whether the classes will be taught in person or digitally, the rental contract should include a covid-19 clause that specifies the conditions in the event of a re-emergence or a new confinement. Its purpose: to try to reconcile the interests of the two parties.
