A Residential Lease Agreement is a lease agreement that is specific to residential rental properties and is used to outline the terms and conditions of a tenancy, including the rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant. It can be used for various types of residential properties, including apartments, houses, condos, duplexes, townhouses, and more.

The chances of a landlord pursuing the matter often depends on the size of the property management company. A landlord with one duplex and a day job might not want to endure the hassle and costs of a day off work as well as the lawyer/paralegal fees. On the other hand, if you have a professional landlord who owns and manages thousands of units, Aaron says they’ve likely got someone dedicated to going after tenants five days a week. “Yours is just another file in their caseload.”


From the Landlord's perspective, there doesn't appear to be many disadvantages to this type of lease other than the Landlord will not receive an immediate cash sale on the property. Also, if the real estate market is rising, the Landlord could possibly lose out on the appreciated value of their property if they have specified a specific purchase price of the property. Consequently, it may be safer for the Landlord to make the purchase price equal to the market value of the property at the time the option is exercised.

The sample residential lease agreement below describes a contract between “Landlord” Keith Richards and “Tenant” Clara Trueba. She agrees to rent a two bed room, two bathroom apartment in Los Angeles for $2,000 per month for a fixed length of 12 months. The tenant agrees to pay for electricity, gas, water, cable television, and telephone, and the landlord agrees to pay for trash and sewage. This is a good example of what provisions a simple lease agreement might contain, and how one should look in its final form.

A landlord who has issued a 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy for Unpaid Rent or Utilities RTB-30 (PDF) may use the Direct Request process to apply for an Order of Possession and a Monetary Order for Unpaid Rent or Utilities when the tenant has neither paid the amount owing nor applied to the Residential Tenancy Branch to cancel the notice within 5 days of receiving it.
When writing a residential lease, it’s best to have the terms of the agreement fully negotiated between the landlord and tenant. After a verbal agreement has been established, the parties may pursue creating a written agreement by using a template that contains the language needed in accordance with the governing law of the State the property is located.
MCW shall not be responsible in case of delay in delivery. No shipments will be initiated between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening, as well as Canadian Statutory Holidays.

This Policy (together with our terms of use and other documents referred to therein) sets out the basis on which we will deal with the personal information we collect from you, or that you provide us. "Personal information" is defined as information about an individual, such as his name, email address or any other information related to his account, including, but not limited to, banking information, credit card information. "Personal information" includes any information that you submit or provide regarding other people. Please read the following privacy policy carefully to understand our vision and practices regarding your personal information, how we use it and how we protect it.
The Landlord reserves the right to dispose of any personal belongings left behind by the tenant, and furthermore reserves the right to rent the Property to additional occupants, and hold the Tenant financially responsible for any difference between the monthly rent that would have been paid under this rental agreement, and the rental payment under any additional rental agreements with subsequent Property occupants.
Although, a common practice endorsed by landlords is to allow a tenant to sublet the property. In a Sublease Agreement, the tenant re-rents the property to another individual who pays rent to the tenant who then pays the rent as stated in the original lease signed with the landlord. In most cases, the tenant will need to obtain permission from the landlord, via the Landlord Consent Form, before being able to find a sub-tenant for the property.
Termination – In most lease agreements, there is no termination clause. If there is, there is usually a termination fee or cost to the tenant. In most cases, the tenant would have to be responsible for paying the remaining rent due. For example, if there are 6 months left on the rent, the tenant is responsible for paying the remaining 6 months plus any other early termination fees.

The Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template is the most widely used landlord-tenant contract. It is a fixed arrangement usually lasting for a period of one (1) year and both parties shall be bound until the end of its term. The document must follow all State Statutes and contain all disclosures as provided by law. After the form has been agreed to, along with the disclosures attached and security deposit provided by the tenant, the form is ready to be signed by the parties.
Please note: in some jurisdictions, a landlord is not allowed to ask for a security deposit. In other jurisdictions, a landlord may require both a security deposit and other types of deposits (for example, a pet damage deposit). You should review the governing legislation for the location of the property to make sure the type of deposit is allowable.

As of April 30, 2018, landlords of residential rental property in Ontario will be obligated to use a new government-issued standard lease template (the “Standard Lease”) for all new residential leases. Requirements relating to the Standard Lease are contained in new Section 12.1 of the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 (the “RTA”) and related regulations.
Assignments and subleases both occur when the tenant gives his/her rights under the lease to a third party. A sublease or an assignment typically requires the consent of the landlord. An assignment occurs when the tenant gives to a third party all of his or her remaining rights under a lease for the entire term of the lease. If a tenant assigns property and the landlord consents to the assignment, that tenant no longer has any rights to the property nor any obligations to the landlord. In a sublease the tenant can transfer a portion of the leased space (e.g. a room in a house) or a portion of the tenancy (e.g. for 5 of the remaining 6 months of the lease) to a third party. The original tenant retains whatever rights under the lease he or she has that were not transferred to the third party, and also retains most of his or her obligations under the lease. Typically, the original tenant can still sue and be sued by the landlord for lease violations.
A security deposit is a sum of money the tenant pays to the landlord to guarantee that the tenant will fulfill all its obligations under the lease. The landlord holds the security deposit in trust for the term of the lease to ensure that the tenant does not default on the terms of the lease agreement or otherwise damage the property. Should the tenant damage the property (normal "wear and tear" excluded) or if the Tenant has not paid rent, the landlord is entitled to recover the amount owing from the security deposit. Usually the tenant must provide the landlord with the security deposit at the start of the lease term. At the end of the lease term, the tenant will receive the deposit back minus any deductions for repairs/restoration.

Section 8: The Tenant is assigned (1) parking space. Parking space is designated as space # Parking Space #. The Tenant may only park a vehicle that is registered in the Tenants’ name. The Tenant may not assign, sublet, or allow any other person to use this space. This space is exclusively used for the parking of passenger automobiles by the Tenant. No other type of vehicle or item may be stored in this space without prior written consent of the Landlord. The Tenant may not wash, repair, or paint in this space or at any other common area on the premises. Any vehicle that is leaking any substance must not be parked anywhere on the premises.

Contact information provided in connection with problems, comments or requests is used only to respond to those problems, comments or requests. This information is not stored or used in connection with traffic or clickstream data and is provided to a third party only as necessary to respond to the comment, problem or request. Finally, you may choose to provide contact information, other Personal Information, and demographic information in order to participate in optional surveys, which are run for promotional purposes.

Next, look for a mention about deposits. Sometimes they're called damage or security deposits. This money should be held in trust by the landlord until you move out, unless there is rent that has been left unpaid or furniture has been damaged. If there's no mention of a deposit but the landlord has asked you for one, first check that deposits are allowed in your province, and then ask to have it included in the lease before you hand any money over.
The chances of a landlord pursuing the matter often depends on the size of the property management company. A landlord with one duplex and a day job might not want to endure the hassle and costs of a day off work as well as the lawyer/paralegal fees. On the other hand, if you have a professional landlord who owns and manages thousands of units, Aaron says they’ve likely got someone dedicated to going after tenants five days a week. “Yours is just another file in their caseload.”

On the other hand, if you have a professional landlord who owns and manages thousands of units, Aaron says they’ve likely got someone dedicated to going after tenants five days a week. “Yours is just another file in their caseload.”

The lease should also mention any additional property maintenance issues, such as when the landlord may have access to your rented apartment for repairs: make sure that there is a clause in the lease that states that written notice must be given 24 hours in advance (unless it's an emergency, of course). Other conditions for entry (if any) should be listed in the lease.


Negotiating a lease agreement is determined by a multitude of factors starting with market conditions and how the property is priced versus other rentals in the area. The landlord’s goal is to collect as much rent each month as possible while mitigating their risk. If the applicant can represent that they would be a stable tenant, the landlord may give them a discount on the monthly rental amount along with including utilities or services.
It is acknowledged that the Landlord is not liable for these occurrences. It is acknowledged that the Tenants’ insurance policy shall solely indemnify the Tenant for any losses sustained. Tenants’ failure to maintain said policy shall be a complete waiver of the Tenants’ right to seek damages against the Landlord for the above stated losses. The parties acknowledge that the premises are not to be considered a security building which would hold the Landlord to a higher degree of care.
A security deposit is an amount of money that is held in an escrow account by the landlord. The funds are fully released to the tenant, at the end of the agreement, pending there is no damage to the property. The security deposit is a safety-net for the landlord in case the tenant decides to not pay rent, vacate the property early, or if at the end of the term there is damage to the premises. If there is damage to the property at the end of the lease, the landlord will usually provide an itemized list of all repairs that were made and their amount.
A rental agreement is a contract, usually written, between the owner of a property and a renter who desires to have temporary possession of the property as distinguished from a lease which is more typically for a fixed term.[1] As a minimum, the agreement identifies the parties, the property, the term of the rental, and the amount of rent for the term. The owner of the property may be referred to as the lessor and the renter as the lessee.
Landlords have the right to collect a Security Deposit from their Tenants. Security Deposits are usually paid up front at the beginning of the lease. The Tenant promises that they will treat the Landlord’s home like their own. The Landlord promises that they will return the Security Deposit if the Tenant does not damage the Premises. For more information about Security Deposits, please read this Wikipedia article.

When you've taken the time to read through the lease thoroughly (don't let the landlord rush you!), check to see that the lease mentions which province will regulate this agreement. Then validate the document with the date and your name and signature (make sure the landlord signs it too!). Keep a copy for your files, and don't hand any money over until you actually sign the lease.
The time use of a chattel or other so called "personal property" is covered under general contract law, but the term lease also nowadays extends to long term rental contracts of more expensive non-Real properties such as automobiles, boats, planes, office equipment and so forth. The distinction in that case is long term versus short term rentals. Some non-real properties commonly available for rent or lease are:
