The Tenant acknowledges that the Landlord’s property insurance does not cover the Tenant’s personal property. The Landlord accepts no liability for damage or loss to the Tenant’s personal property for any reason. The Tenant acknlowledges their responsibility to obtain appropriate Renters’ Insurance to protect the value of their personal belongings.
A rental agreement can be written, verbal or implied. Since the rental agreement is the most important part of a landlord and tenant relationship, it should be in writing. The advantage of a written agreement is that it outlines the terms and conditions agreed to by both parties. Once the landlord and tenant agree to the terms and conditions of their contract, it cannot be changed unless both parties agree.
Housing built before 1978 may contain lead based paint. Lead from paint, paint chips, and dust can pose health hazards if not taken care of properly. Lead exposure is especially harmful to young children and pregnant women. Before renting pre-1978 housing, lessors must disclose the presence of known lead-based paint hazards in the dwelling.  Lessees must also receive a federally approved pamphlet on lead poisoning prevention.
Security Deposit – This is the mount of deposit the landlord collects upfront before the renter moves in. The security deposit is usually 1 to 2 times the amount of the monthly rent and is returned to the tenant at the end of the lease term if nothing has been broken or damaged. Take a look at your local state laws as some states put a cap on the amount of security a landlord collect.
This Agreement, including all attachments (if any), constitutes the entire agreement between the parties supersedes all previous negotiations, agreements and commitments whether written or oral with respect to this tenancy. Any modification of this Agreement shall be in writing and shall be signed by each party. There are no understandings, representations or warranties except as herein expressly set forth and no rights are granted except as expressly set forth herein.
The security deposit is often handled as an escrow deposit, owned by the tenant, but held by the landlord until the premises are surrendered in good condition (ordinary wear and tear excepted). In some states, the landlord must provide the tenant with the name and account number of the bank where the security deposit is held, and pay annual interest to the tenant. Other regulations may require the landlord to submit a list of pre-existing damage to the property, or forfeit the security deposit immediately (because there is no way to determine whether a prior tenant was responsible).
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:

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.
Section 4. On signing this Lease Agreement, the Tenant will pay to the Landlord the sum of $Security Depositas a security deposit for the performance by the Tenant of the terms of this Lease Agreement.

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.
Whether subletting or assigning, the candidate should have a good credit history and be earning a steady income. Note that with assignment, if the landlord does not allow you to assign the rental unit, or doesn’t reply within seven days of your request to assign it, the tenant board says you are allowed to end the tenancy by giving notice to the landlord no later than 30 days after your assignment request was made.
A rental agreement can be written, verbal or implied. Since the rental agreement is the most important part of a landlord and tenant relationship, it should be in writing. The advantage of a written agreement is that it outlines the terms and conditions agreed to by both parties. Once the landlord and tenant agree to the terms and conditions of their contract, it cannot be changed unless both parties agree.
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.
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.
Make sure that every appliance and piece of furniture that is mentioned in the lease exists on the property. If not, at the end of the agreement the landlord will be liable to claim whatever is mentioned in the lease as part of the property. If a move-in checklist is being completed, this is not a huge issue, but the tenant should double-check to ensure that all is included as part of the lease.
VISITORS will exonerate RENTQUEBECAPARTMENTS.COM and be responsible for the total sum of any losses, costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney fees, related to any violations of the present provisions of the Agreement by the VISITOR or by any other person with access to the VISITOR's account, either through the use of the present Web site, or by the broadcasting or transmission of any information or materials on the present Web site by the VISITOR and by any other person with access to the VISITOR's account.
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.
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.  

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.
Other details may include what happens if rent is late. Will a late payment fee or interest rate apply? For example, if the monthly rent of $500 is due on the first of the month, what happens if the rent is not paid until the 15th of the month? You can use a Late Rent Notice to ensure rent payment is made. Learn more about late rent fees from Nolo.
