A Residential Lease Agreement should be used when leasing any kind of livable property to a tenant which may include a house, apartment, room, condo, mobile home or some other type of habitable property. It’s very important to use a lease to minimize disputes and if ever a problem results in the need for court, such as an eviction, a lease is needed in order for either party to win their case, especially the landlord.

19.3 Our performance under any Contract is deemed to be suspended until the event of force majeure continues (the “Period”), and we are entitled to an extension of time for performance equivalent to that Period. We will use all reasonable means at our disposal to end the event of Force Majeure and/or find a solution by which we keep our commitments and obligations under the Contract, despite the event Force Majeure. Please note that this is an obligation of means and not an obligation of result.
If the landlord/property manager provides the New Form within 30 calendar days after the tenant began withholding rent, the tenant must pay the rent withheld. However, if the landlord/property manager does not do so, the tenant does not have to repay that rent. The tenant can only withhold one month's rent. After one month has elapsed, the tenant must continue to pay rent for the rest of the term of the lease—even if the landlord/property manager never provides the New Form.

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.
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.
Only tenants and people listed as occupants may reside in the premises. The landlord must be informed and approve of any change to the list of permitted tenants. Children born or adopted while the tenant lives in the premises are automatically added to the lease as occupants. Also, each jurisdiction may restrict the number of tenants/occupants in the premises if that number violates health or safety standards for housing. Health and safety standards are typically expressed as 1 person per X sq. ft. The standard varies from jurisdiction to jurisdiction so if you are concerned, check with your local housing/public health authority.

Lease Term – This is the length of the lease. Most long term lease arrangements are at least 1 year but some terms can be month to month. As a landlord, it is important to have any lease term end in a seasonally beneficial time period so if the tenant does not renew, you can find a replacement relatively quickly. The best month to have your lease renew is during the typical moving months of June, July and August. If you fail to renew the lease, most state rental laws say that the contract then goes month to month.

Alberta doesn’t have standard leases or residential tenancy agreement forms. This means that the landlord and the tenant can make up their own agreements, or they can use forms available from organizations across Alberta that develop them. Landlords and tenants should make sure that they are using an agreement that has been developed for Alberta, as each province has different renting laws.
The present Terms of Use (“the Agreement”) is a legal binding contract between VISITORS, being (“the USER”), and the advertisers (“the CLIENT”) and RHINO MEDIA GROUP INC. (“Renterpages.com), regarding the use of the services provided by Renterpages.com through its site.

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.

You must provide proper notice to the landlord that you do not intend to renew the lease, before the lease expires. Notice must be given a certain amount of time before the lease expires, as dictated by statute in your jurisdiction. This amount of time is called the "notice period". Typically, the notice period is one month for leases with a term of one month or less, and two or three months for leases with a term of more than one month, but this will vary according to the jurisdiction. You should consult the governing statute for the jurisdiction the property is located in to find out the required notice period for your lease.
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.
The landlord's obligations are defined by the terms and conditions contained in the lease and the laws specific to where the property is located. The most important obligations of the landlord include providing the tenant access to the property and allowing the tenant peaceful enjoyment of the property. The legal owner of the property also has obligations to maintain the property to minimum standards.
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.
If you are planning to sublet your place its important to know that you remain entirely responsible for the obligations of the lease. That said, you can draw up a sublease form by using a standard lease form and fill it out as the landlord. Let your landlord know you are planning to sublet your place and notify them of your sub-tenant nomination. They are allowed to refused the sub-tenant provided they offer serious explanations. A sublet is a sublet (versus assigning a lease) only if you expect to return afterwards.
If the house is subject to any Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions (CC&Rs), HOA agreements, or other similar instruments, copies of such documents should be given to tenant prior to the parties signing the rental agreement. If the house was built before 1978, the Lead-Based Paint Disclosure and Pamphlet (available at www.epa.gov) should be given to tenant prior to the parties signing the rental agreement. If the house was built in 1978 or later, the second paragraph of Section 6 can be deleted from the rental agreement.

A lease agreement is beneficial for many reasons. It clarifies the obligations of both parties during a residential tenancy so each person knows what is expected of them during the rental relationship. For example, the tenant may be responsible for paying rent on the first of every month, while the landlord is expected to keep the property in good condition.
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.

From the tenant's perspective, the advantage to this kind of lease is that they don't have to pay the purchase price up front. If the Tenant cannot qualify for a loan, then they have the option of purchasing the property at a later date when their finances are more secure. In addition, the purchase price may be fixed, so the tenant does not have to worry if the real estate market fluctuates.
