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.

The sample residential lease agreement below describes a contract between “Landlord” Keith Richards and “Tenant” Clara Trueba. She agrees to rent a two bed room, two bathroom apartment in Los Angeles for $2,000 per month for a fixed length of 12 months. The tenant agrees to pay for electricity, gas, water, cable television, and telephone, and the landlord agrees to pay for trash and sewage. This is a good example of what provisions a simple lease agreement might contain, and how one should look in its final form.

Rent: Clearly specify how much the rent is and when it’s due. It should also be clear what’s included in the rent – for example, if utilities, laundry or cable are included; or whether there are other refundable or non-refundable fees payable, such as late fees. Essential services such as heat, electricity and hot water must be provided, but the agreement may say that the tenant pays for these
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.
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.

Please note: in some jurisdictions, a landlord is not allowed to ask for a security deposit. In other jurisdictions, a landlord may require both a security deposit and other types of deposits (for example, a pet damage deposit). You should review the governing legislation for the location of the property to make sure the type of deposit is allowable.

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 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.
A security deposit is an amount of money that is held in an escrow account by the landlord. The funds are fully released to the tenant, at the end of the agreement, pending there is no damage to the property. The security deposit is a safety-net for the landlord in case the tenant decides to not pay rent, vacate the property early, or if at the end of the term there is damage to the premises. If there is damage to the property at the end of the lease, the landlord will usually provide an itemized list of all repairs that were made and their amount.

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.

Starting April 30, 2018, Ontario landlords leasing private residential rental units must use a new standard form of lease (the "New Form"). If you are a landlord, or a property management company, you should be aware that the New Form may affect how you do business. The New Form sets out the essential terms of a lease and outlines both your and your tenant's rights and responsibilities.
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.
