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.
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.
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.
Landlords have the right to collect a Security Deposit from their Tenants. Security Deposits are usually paid up front at the beginning of the lease. The Tenant promises that they will treat the Landlord’s home like their own. The Landlord promises that they will return the Security Deposit if the Tenant does not damage the Premises. For more information about Security Deposits, please read this Wikipedia article.

The lease should also mention any additional property maintenance issues, such as when the landlord may have access to your rented apartment for repairs: make sure that there is a clause in the lease that states that written notice must be given 24 hours in advance (unless it's an emergency, of course). Other conditions for entry (if any) should be listed in the lease.

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.
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 landlord who has issued a 10 Day Notice to End Tenancy for Unpaid Rent or Utilities RTB-30 (PDF) may use the Direct Request process to apply for an Order of Possession and a Monetary Order for Unpaid Rent or Utilities when the tenant has neither paid the amount owing nor applied to the Residential Tenancy Branch to cancel the notice within 5 days of receiving it.
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.
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.
The tenant will have to read their lease as most agreements automatically convert to a month-to-month lease (tenancy-at-will) if there is no termination by either party. In most cases, the landlord will send the tenant a Lease Extension Addendum before the original lease ends to extend the term. The extension will detail the new end date, along with any other changes, while maintaining the rest of the terms of the original lease agreement.
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.

If you’re a tenant and want to move before the end of the lease, there are two ways you can avoid paying rent until the end of the lease.    What is the difference between subletting and assigning a lease? You can assign your lease if you decide to leave your rental unit permanently during the course of the lease. You transfer your lease to someone else and have no further responsibilities as a...

As of April 30, 2018, landlords of residential rental property in Ontario will be obligated to use a new government-issued standard lease template (the “Standard Lease”) for all new residential leases. Requirements relating to the Standard Lease are contained in new Section 12.1 of the Residential Tenancies Act, 2006 (the “RTA”) and related regulations.

In the first blank, insert the amount of the security deposit. Often this amount is equal to one month's rent, however the parties may choose to agree on any amount. In the second blank, insert the portion (if any) of the security deposit that will not be refundable at the end of the term. For example, the landlord might have a policy of having the carpets professionally cleaned after each tenant, and in that case the landlord might state that $200 of the security deposit will be non-refundable. Of course, the landlord has the right to utilize the entire deposit, if necessary, toward unpaid rent or the cost of repairing any damage to the premises caused by tenant, as set forth in more detail in this section of the agreement.

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

A security deposit is a sum of money the tenant pays to the landlord to guarantee that the tenant will fulfill all its obligations under the lease. The landlord holds the security deposit in trust for the term of the lease to ensure that the tenant does not default on the terms of the lease agreement or otherwise damage the property. Should the tenant damage the property (normal "wear and tear" excluded) or if the Tenant has not paid rent, the landlord is entitled to recover the amount owing from the security deposit. Usually the tenant must provide the landlord with the security deposit at the start of the lease term. At the end of the lease term, the tenant will receive the deposit back minus any deductions for repairs/restoration.

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.
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.
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.

The landlord can deduct from the security deposit when the tenancy ends and the tenant owes the landlord money for either unpaid rent or damage to the premises. The landlord generally cannot deduct for reasonable "wear and tear" on the premises, (i.e. wear and tear that occurs just from living in the premises). The landlord can deduct for stains on the carpet or countertops, large holes in the wall, and missing appliances and other such things that are beyond reasonable wear and tear.
