Prior to April 30, 2018, residential landlords should familiarize themselves with the Standard Lease including the General Information Appendix. Landlords should also consider preparing their own customized versions of the Standard Lease containing any relevant special or property-specific clauses in anticipation of tenant requests for the Standard Lease. Any additions or variations to the Standard Lease must comply with the RTA.

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.

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.

This is one of the most important reasons to read your lease in detail before you sign it! Take it home if you need to, and ask all the questions you need to clarify any terms in it that you're not sure about. You may want to beware of any landlord that is trying to rush you into signing or fails to respond to your concerns – if the landlord behaves this way before you've even moved in, imagine what it would be like if you were already moved in and needed repairs done, for example.

The tenant will have to read their lease as most agreements automatically convert to a month-to-month lease (tenancy-at-will) if there is no termination by either party. In most cases, the landlord will send the tenant a Lease Extension Addendum before the original lease ends to extend the term. The extension will detail the new end date, along with any other changes, while maintaining the rest of the terms of the original lease agreement.
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.

The Ontario government is requiring all landlords to use a standard lease template for all new leases beginning April 30, 2018. Lawyers are encouraged to make themselves familiar with the terms of this new lease so they can advise clients of their obligations and rights under the new lease. The information below is taken from the Government of Ontario website at https://www.ontario.ca/page/renting-ontario-your-rights. The official page containing the standard lease template is at http://www.mah.gov.on.ca/Page18704.aspx.
If the Tenant tenders a cheque, which is dishonored by a banking institution, then the Tenant shall only tender cash or cashier's cheque for all future payments. This shall continue until such time as written consent is obtained from the Landlord. In addition, the Tenant shall be liable in the sum of $50 for each cheque that is returned to the Landlord because the cheque has been dishonored.
Perhaps the most important disclosure is to identify to a new tenant the existence of lead-based paint on the premises. Under federal law (42 U.S. Code § 4852d), if the structure on the property was built prior to 1978, the landlord will be required to issue the disclosure to the tenant. The disclosure casts a warning to the tenant that if they should see any chipping, deteriorating, or cracking paint on the premises to contact the landlord and authorities immediately.

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.


A body corporate is the group of all the owners of lots or units which share common property. The body corporate bylaws refer to the set of rules governing the internal management of those lots. The bylaws may specify rules relating to noise, parking, behaviour of guests, pets, garbage disposal and the use of common property. The bylaws are sometimes referred to as a Community Management Statement or Condominium Bylaws.

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 "Act" refers to the legislation governing residential tenancy agreements in your jurisdiction. After you select the Location of Property when you are filling out the Lease Agreement Details, you will see a link beneath your selection to the governing legislation for the jurisdiction you have selected. It is not necessary to specifically state the name of the "Act" in your contract, as the relevant legislation is satisfactorily identified by the "severability clause" of your lease.

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.

A: The grace period is a short period (typically 3-5 days) after the rent due date. During this time, the tenant can still pay the rent without being charged a late fee. As long as the tenant pays the rent before the end of the grace period, then a late fee will not be charged. Some states regulate the length of the grace period. In other words, the landlord must not charge a late fee for late rent for a certain number of days. Please check your state and local law to make sure your grace period is within the correct time period. Follow these guidelines if you aren’t sure what to do when the rent is late.
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:
