Negotiating a lease agreement is determined by a multitude of factors starting with market conditions and how the property is priced versus other rentals in the area. The landlord’s goal is to collect as much rent each month as possible while mitigating their risk. If the applicant can represent that they would be a stable tenant, the landlord may give them a discount on the monthly rental amount along with including utilities or services.
The length of time of a lease agreement is identified as one of the requirements of the contract. A lease agreement can be created for month-to-month leasing, six months, one year or more. Lease agreements are not required to be the same set amount of time. At the end of the current lease (fixed term) the landlord may wish to extend the lease to the tenant, as a lease agreement does not automatically renew, unlike a rental agreement. The current lease agreement will need to be amended or a new legally binding agreement can also be signed.

The lease is mutually beneficial. A tenant can't stop paying rent or vacate the property during the lease term — this is a violation of the agreement. Likewise, the landlord can't arbitrarily force the tenant to move. If my sister moves to town, for instance, I can't evict one of my tenants for the sake of giving that space to a family member. The tenant has secured it with a lease. My hands are tied.
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.

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.
This lease agreement template provides for a one year term, which is the most common, however the term can be longer or shorter as agreed upon by the parties. In the first blank, insert the date on which the rental term will begin. This is the date on which the tenant can take possession and begin to occupy the premises, and the date on which rent will commence. Ideally, the term will begin on the first day of a calendar month (this approach makes the accounting and record keeping easier), but it doesn't need to. In the second blank, insert the date on which the rental term will expire. For a one year term, this will be the day before the anniversary of the start date, for example: beginning on February 1, 2017, and ending on January 31, 2018.
After April 30, 2018, renters will not be entitled to ask a landlord for a Standard Lease if: (a) the renter is subject to an existing lease signed before April 30, 2018, unless the renter and their landlord negotiate a new lease agreement with new terms; or (b) the renter signed a fixed-term lease before April 30, 2018 and the lease renewed automatically to a month-to-month tenancy after April 30, 2018.
Any waiver by the Landlord of any failure by the Tenant to perform or observe the provisions of this Lease will not operate as a waiver of the Landlord's rights under this Lease in respect of any subsequent defaults, breaches or non-performance and will not defeat or affect in any way the Landlord's rights in respect of any subsequent default or breach.

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.
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.”

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.
Typically when a tenant agrees to a fixed term tenancy, usually for either 6 months or 1 year, the tenant is agreeing to be responsible for the rent for that period of time. If the tenant vacates the premises prior to the end of the term of the agreement, the tenant will typically still be responsible for payment of rent for the entire length of the lease (provided the tenancy is not in a jurisdiction that allows the tenant to give notice to prematurely end a fixed term tenancy). Typically, if the Landlord is able to re-rent the premises prior to the end of the lease of the breaching tenant, the breaching tenant is no longer required to pay rent as the landlord cannot collect double rent for the premises.
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.
There will certainly be a requirement to show a driver's license, and only those drivers appearing on the contract may be authorized to drive. It may include an option to purchase auto insurance (motor insurance, UK), if the renter does not already have a policy to cover rentals—another important consideration for multiple drivers. Some agencies may even require a bond payable if the car is not returned in order, often held in the form of a credit-card authorization—voided if the car is returned per agreement. A renter should be advised that he or she will be responsible for any parking or traffic violations incurred upon the vehicle during the rental period. There should also be advice on handling thefts, accidents, break-downs, and towing.
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.

Currently, there is no mandatory standard form of lease for landlords/property managers and tenants in Ontario. From April 30, 2018, however, the New Form will be required for most new private market residential tenancies. Although the New Form will allow for additional terms, landlords/property managers should ensure that these terms do not alter the New Form in any way or contravene the Act. If they do, landlords/property managers will be unable to enforce them.
