Abstract: The study analyzes the problems encountered by property lessors in dealing with dishonest tenants on the Polish rental market. The article proposes a new legal tool, a Register of Dishonest Tenants (RDT), which would provide property owners with more extensive rights in protecting their property against dishonest lessees. The main objective was achieved in three steps: 1) the legal regulations and the literature relating to lease contracts were analyzed; 2) the situation on the Polish rental market was discussed; 3) the proposed legal tool for protecting property owners against dishonest tenants was presented. The authors also postulated the need to introduce legal definitions of the terms “dishonest tenant” (the definition is formulated in the article) and “commercial premises”, including their functions. The authors argue that the proposed legal instrument could be an effective and rational solution to the growing problem of dishonest tenancy. The presented RDT would protect the interests of landlords and would contribute to the effectiveness of the rental market in Poland.
