2. Try and sublet: A common arrangement is to find someone to take over your lease, known as a sublet. The person stays there and pays rent place while you’re away, but you keep the lease. That means you’re on the hook if something goes wrong. “If you find somebody to sublet and that person doesn’t pay, the landlord can still come after you for the money,” says real estate lawyer and Moneyville columnist Mark Weisleder.

Nolo provides a quick low down on the difference between a rental agreement — usually for a short 30-day period that automatically renews — and a lease agreement — usually longer 6-month or 1 year plus period that ends.

“Just pay what you think is fair,” or a number written on the back of a napkin is not an option. This document should explicitly list the monthly rental amount. If you are unsure of what the going rate is for a place, check out Zillow. You can also include the terms of whether the rent may be subjected to changes in future, using a Notice of Rent Increase.
A rental agreement is often called a lease, especially when real estate is rented. In addition to the basics of a rental (who, what, when, how much), a real estate rental may go into much more detail on these and other issues. The real estate may be rented for housing, parking a vehicle(s), storage, business, agricultural, institutional, or government use, or other reasons.
In most jurisdictions, there is a minimum period of notice required by statute. The lease can specify a notice period longer than the legal minimum, but it cannot specify a period shorter than the legal minimum. If it does, the legal minimum notice will still be required. You should consult the governing statute for these legal minimums as they will vary according to jurisdiction and the type and length of the lease. To review the legislation on the notice period, check the links under the location of property area on the questions page.

A lease with a fixed end date gives certainty of term for both the landlord and the tenant. It specifies the exact day the tenancy will end. The advantage here is that neither party has to give notice to terminate the lease, it simply ends on the specified date. During a fixed term lease the landlord cannot increase the rent, or change any other terms of the lease unless he specifically reserves the right in the agreement, and the tenant agrees to the changes.
In addition to the above, a car rental agreement may include various restrictions on the way a renter can use a car, and the condition in which it must be returned. For example, some rentals cannot be driven off-road, or out of the country, or towing a trailer, without specific permission. In New Zealand you may have to specifically endorse a promise that the car will not be driven onto Ninety-mile Beach (because of the hazardous tides).
A lease is a contract. When you sign a lease, you have responsibilities toward your landlord under this contract. Quebec law lets you end your lease if your safety or the safety of a child living with you is threatened by spousal or sexual violence. This law also applies to same-sex couples. Spousal or sexual violence Spousal violence is violent behaviour coming from a spouse or former spouse...
Because this is a complicated situation, you may wish to contact a qualified lawyer in your jurisdiction, especially if large sums of money are involved. You should inform your landlord immediately of the situation, so it cannot later be claimed that the landlord suffered losses as a result of not knowing that you were not going to move in. You may also wish to contact your local Residential Tenancies Board or government agency who oversees landlord/tenant disputes to find out the extent of your liability, which may or may not be limited by statute.
While technically considered an occupant, pets are not a landlord’s best friend. Even if they are allowed on the property, the landlord should state exactly which types are allowed so that an “organic” tenant doesn’t have farm animals on the premises. Furthermore, it’s recommended that the landlord place a maximum weight the animal may be for liability (dangerous dogs tend to be larger) and damage to the premises.

The landlord can deduct from the security deposit when the tenancy ends and the tenant owes the landlord money for either unpaid rent or damage to the premises. The landlord generally cannot deduct for reasonable "wear and tear" on the premises, (i.e. wear and tear that occurs just from living in the premises). The landlord can deduct for stains on the carpet or countertops, large holes in the wall, and missing appliances and other such things that are beyond reasonable wear and tear.
Under the Rental of Residential Property Act, a landlord is not responsible for damages to a tenant's personal property. If a tenant wishes to be compensated for losses or damages to their personal belongings, the tenant should obtain tenant insurance. If a tenant believes he has a cause of action against the landlord for personal injury and/or damages to personal property, the tenant may pursue the matter in the Supreme Court of Prince Edward Island.

Typically, renting a room or a basement suite means you are sharing an accommodation with the landlord. A basement suite is a self-contained dwelling unit complete with its own kitchen, bathroom, and living area. Most tenants of a basement suite use a separate entrance to enter the house than the rest of the occupants. If you rent a room, you will likely share either the kitchen or bathroom with the landlord or other tenants.
If a landlord fails to provide the Standard Lease within 21 days after a renter has made a request in writing, the renter may: (i) withhold a maximum of one month’s rent; or (ii) give 60 days’ notice to terminate a yearly or fixed-term tenancy early. If the landlord fails to provide the Standard Lease within 30 days after the renter has begun withholding rent, the renter does not have to repay the one month’s rent that was withheld.
In addition, some leases may contain penalty clauses whereby the tenant is required to pay "re-rental fees" to cover part of the cost of the landlord having to re-rent the premises. However, the amount of the "re-rental fee" has to be reasonable and must be a pre-estimate of the damages that the Landlord will suffer in having to re-rent the premises early.
Lead-Based Paint Disclosure – Form required under Federal Law for all residences constructed prior to 1978. Before 1978, it was common for lead-based paint to be used in the interior of homes. Since then it has been found that lead does not promote brain function and is especially harmful to minor children. If at any time there is chipping or the peeling of lead-paint, it is imperative that the landlord remediate the property as soon as possible.
A lease with a predetermined end date, usually called a fixed term lease, is when the tenant agrees to rent the property for a certain period of time at a fixed price. This type of lease uses calendar dates to specify the start and end of the lease. At the end of a fixed term lease, the landlord and tenant can sign a new lease with updated dates and information or move on.
Landlord acknowledges that Tenant has a right to allow guests at the Property from time to time. Thus, Tenant may allow guests into the Property for up to fourteen (14) consecutive days without requiring written consent from the Landlord. Guests residing at the Property for longer than fourteen (14) days may only do so with prior written consent from the Landlord.
The lease should be reviewed for early termination clauses that allow for it to be broken with no penalty. If no clauses are found, the tenant may attempt to have legal clauses added to allow for the lease to be broken without penalty. Clauses are provided at the discretion of the landlord, or property management company if acting on the behalf of the best interest of the landlord. Dependent on the reasons for the tenant to break the lease, some states provide options that would not hold the tenant liable even when not stated in the Standard Residential Lease Agreement.
Section 17. The Tenant shall not make any alterations to the premises, including but not limited to installing aerials, lighting fixtures, dishwashers, washing machines, dryers or other items without first obtaining written permission from the Landlord. The Tenant shall not change or install locks, paint, or wallpaper said premises without Landlords' prior written consent, the Tenant shall not place placards, signs, or other exhibits in a window or any other place where they can be viewed by other residents or by the general public.
A: Usually if the tenant does not have a lot of credit history or is particularly young (such as a college student), then the landlord will require a cosigner or guarantor. Requiring a cosigner for the tenant is mainly for the landlord’s protection in case the tenant defaults on the lease. In case the tenant defaults and cannot pay rent, the cosigner is responsible for paying the amount due to the landlord. The guarantor is usually someone in good financial standing or has excellent credit. Feel free to use a Lease Application in order to require any prospective tenants to undergo a credit check before allowing them to sign a lease agreement.
Additional occupants: The agreement may include a term restricting the number of occupants in a rental unit or requiring the landlord’s permission before additional occupants can live in the rental unit. If additional occupants are added, a landlord can only increase the rent if the tenancy agreement includes a term allowing the rent to vary based on the number of occupants or the parties all agree to sign a new tenancy agreement.
