Section 14. The staff or the building manager may enter the Premises at any time in the event of an emergency. With two days prior notice, the Landlord or Landlord’s agents may enter the Premises at reasonable times and manners to make repairs or improvements, or to show the Premises to prospective buyers or tenants. The Landlord may also enter the Premises to conduct a semi-annual inspection to check for safety or maintenance problems.
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.
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.

Because full-time students are often unable to make enough money to pay for the apartment's rent during the school year, landlords often require someone to cosign the lease with you. This is usually your parent or someone who's going to be paying the majority of the rent. In this case, it is important to let the landlord know that you will not be providing the primary salary but it is perfectly legal for the landlord to request a cosigner. Also if you have bad credit, it never hurts to have co-signer who can vouch for your reformed ways.

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. 

“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.
Prior to moving in, the tenant and the landlord should walk through the premises and write down any existing damage. This written account is called an inspection report. The landlord and tenant should both get a copy of this report. In some jurisdictions, an inspection report is also required upon moving out, as a condition for the landlord to make a claim against the tenant's security deposit.
A landlord is required to deliver the dwelling in "good habitable condition" and the tenant is required to leave the dwelling  in "good habitable condition." In between, it is the landlord's responsibility to maintain upkeep. Request repairs to the super/janitor, where applicable, and, if needed, then follow up with the landlord. If there are neglect disputes, especially regarding urgent repairs follow up with the Regie.
Who: The parties involved in the contract, the lessor (sometimes called the owner or landlord) and the lessee (sometimes called the renter or tenant) are identified in the contract. A housing lease may specify whether the renter is living alone, with family, children, roommate, visitors. A rental may delineate the rights and obligations of each of these. For example, a "sub-let" to a stranger might not be permitted without permission of the landlord. This also applies to whether or not pets may be kept by the renter. On the other hand, the renter may also have specific rights against intrusions by the landlord (or other tenants), except under emergency circumstances. A renter is in possession of the property, and a landlord would be trespassing upon the renter's rights if entry is made without proper notice and authority (e.g., 24 hours' notice, daytime, knock first, except for emergency repairs, in case of fire, flood, etc.).

With the last of the pitiful snow melting away, Spring is officially here which means it's time to start scrambling for your dream apartment. Especially if you're looking to find a lease that starts in the upcoming summer months. It's peak season for signing apartment leases. Want to avoid getting screwed over by a stingy landlord? Quebec's Regie du Logement has written protections for landlords and tenants alike. But among pages of legal jargon, we've translated and simplified the Regie down to 10 things you need to know before you sign.

Within 30 days of the termination of this lease (and Tenant vacating the Property), Landlord will provide the Tenants with an itemized statement showing any retention of any portions of the Security Deposit amount for the cost of repair or cleaning above and beyond the ordinary wear and tear on the Property or any other sums due to Landlord under this Residential Lease Agreement.  Tenants are not permitted to treat the Security Deposit as payment of any rent payment.
Tenants will be respectful of the neighbors and community where the Property is located and not create nuisances or excessive noise, nor will any illegal conduct be carried out on the premises.  Commission of criminal conduct on the Property will be grounds for immediate termination of this Residential Lease Agreement and an obligation for Tenant to immediately vacate the Property.
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 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).
