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.

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.
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.).
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.
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.
An option to purchase refers to a lease which allows the tenant to buy the property at an agreed price during the lease term. Usually the tenant pays the landlord a non-refundable option deposit and in exchange the tenant has the exclusive right to buy the property from the landlord. The tenant is given only a certain amount of time to exercise the option. If the Tenant takes advantage of the option, the Tenant's option deposit will go towards the purchase price of the property. If the Tenant does not take advantage of the option, the Landlord will get to keep the deposit and neither party will have any rights or claims against each other concerning the option.

A Standard Residential Lease is the most basic and popular type of document used when renting property to an individual, known as a tenant. It is highly customizable which is very important for landlords and property owners who wish to alter the agreement according to their needs and property type. The 3 main subjects a lease should entail is the term (length of time), the amount per month or period, and any type of deposit such as a security or pet deposit. The lease guarantees that the rights and responsibilities of both landlord and tenant be ensured, according to the state.
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.

If there is late payment by the tenant the landlord has a couple of options. Firstly, they may accept a late fee for the delay in payment. Secondly and depending on the laws in the State, the landlord may give an official Notice to Pay or Quit stating the landlord has the right to terminate the lease if the tenant does not pay by the end of the time-period stated.
RENTQUEBECAPARTMENTS.COM is committed to effectively maintain on its Web site, for all the duration agreed upon at the time of the order by means of the Web site of RENTQUEBECAPARTMENTS.COM or by any other agreement between the CLIENT and RENTQUEBECAPARTMENTS.COM, any advertisement placed on the Web site of RENTQUEBECAPARTMENTS.COM, regardless of the fact, by example, that the good being the subject of an advertisement can be rented within a time shorter than that for which this good was to be announced during the ordering of its publication.
4. Is the apartment in bad shape? A tenant may be able to get out of a lease if the apartment is in a sub-standard state and repeated attempts to have repairs made have been ignored. Sub-standard could mean poor maintenance of the building and/or unit, public health concerns like water and mould, or harassment of a tenant by a landlord. In this case, as long as you have proof, the tenant board can order an end to the tenancy because “the landlord has not met their obligations.”

From the Landlord's perspective, the advantages to this type of lease are that they can sell the property in a slow market and can charge a higher rent than they could using a regular lease. Also, if the buyer does not exercise the option, they get to keep the option deposit. Lastly, because the tenant has a vested interest in the property, they tend take better care of it than they would if they were just ordinary tenants.
Move-in Checklist (Inspection) – Required in Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin.

The Standard Lease applies to most residential tenancies in Ontario, including leases of condominiums, single-family homes and units in apartment buildings. The Standard Lease does not apply to commercial properties, residential sub-tenancies, as well as tenancies involving student residences, retirement homes, land lease communities and other property types that are exempt from the RTA. However, the Ontario government announced that it is also working on standard form leases for some of the foregoing exempt classes of residential tenancies. There is no estimated publication date for these additional standard lease forms.
