A lease with a predetermined end date, usually called a fixed term lease, is when the tenant agrees to rent the property for a certain period of time at a fixed price. This type of lease uses calendar dates to specify the start and end of the lease. At the end of a fixed term lease, the landlord and tenant can sign a new lease with updated dates and information or move on.

In order to rent or lease in many apartment buildings, a renter (also referred to as a “lessee") is often required to provide proof of renters insurance before signing the rental agreement. There is a special type of the homeowners insurance in the United States specifically for renters — HO-4. This is commonly referred to as renter’s insurance or renter's coverage. Similar to condominium coverage, referred to as a HO-6 policy, a renter's insurance policy covers those aspects of the apartment and its contents not specifically covered in the blanket policy written for the complex. This policy can also cover liabilities arising from accidents and intentional injuries for guests as well as passers-by up to 150' of the domicile. Renter’s policies provide "named peril" coverage, meaning the policy states specifically what you are insured against. Common coverage areas are:

A: In the event the Tenant defaults by any reason other than failing to pay rent (i.e. having a pet if not permitted or breaking any other rule specified in the Agreement), the Landlord may give written notice to the Tenant to terminate the agreement. Specify the number of days’ written notice the Landlord will give to the Tenant before terminating the agreement. The notice period can vary by state so we recommend you check your local laws.

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.
Move-in Checklist (Inspection) – Required in Arizona, Georgia, Hawaii, Kansas, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Utah, Virginia, Washington, and Wisconsin. Without this checklist completed, the tenant will have no evidence to support that any damage present at the end of the term was not the fault of the tenant.

Make sure that every appliance and piece of furniture that is mentioned in the lease exists on the property. If not, at the end of the agreement the landlord will be liable to claim whatever is mentioned in the lease as part of the property. If a move-in checklist is being completed, this is not a huge issue, but the tenant should double-check to ensure that all is included as part of the lease.
RentQuebecApartments.com may decide to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will post the new provisions on this page. Please be aware that, as part of the Services, RentQuebecApartments.com may provide links to web sites operated by third parties, and may also provide search results and similar services to third parties for display on their own web sites or application.

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. 

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.
22.1 The present terms of use constitutes the entire, complete and exclusive agreement between the parties hereto with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all previous agreements whether written or oral, between the Parties. Headings used in this Agreement are provided for convenience only and shall not be used to construe meaning or intent.        
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.
9.2 We reserve the right to cancel your membership without notice if you fail or failed to pay for any service, if you have violated any term or condition hereof. We also reserve the right to cancel your subscription at any time without notice and at our sole discretion, prior to receiving your payment for the services rendered through our website.
A: The pet policy should clearly outline the type of pets that are allowed (if any), how many of each type, and the expected care and cleanliness to be maintained if a tenant will keep a pet on the premises. You can also specify any rules regarding the pet and whether you have the right to change the pet agreement as long as you give proper notice (at least 30 days).
Both written and oral rental agreements define the legal rights and responsibilities for both the landlord and the tenant. This is important as they can be referred to if a conflict arises between either. Note, however, that verbal consent makes it much more difficult to refer to in the event of a dispute as each party might remember things differently.
Section 19. The Landlord's failure to require compliance with the conditions of this agreement, or to exercise any right provided herein, shall not be deemed a waiver by the Landlord of such condition or right. The Landlord's acceptance of rent with knowledge of any default under agreement by the Tenants shall not be deemed a waiver of such default, nor shall it limit the Landlord's rights with respect to that or any subsequent right.
The landlord has the right to ask for a rent increase. In a word: inflation. This year, and keep in mind that it totally depends on the building, the Regie estimated a 0.6% increase for an unheated dwelling. If you refuse the rent increase, which is legal, then the landlord does not have the right to kick you out. But the landlord then has the right to go to the Regie, and then it makes a whole legal mess. Typically an increase of 1-3% is normal and it's generally prudent to just accept it.
2. Try and sublet: A common arrangement is to find someone to take over your lease, known as a sublet. The person stays there and pays rent place while you’re away, but you keep the lease. That means you’re on the hook if something goes wrong. “If you find somebody to sublet and that person doesn’t pay, the landlord can still come after you for the money,” says real estate lawyer and Moneyville columnist Mark Weisleder.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
Make sure that every appliance and piece of furniture that is mentioned in the lease exists on the property. If not, at the end of the agreement the landlord will be liable to claim whatever is mentioned in the lease as part of the property. If a move-in checklist is being completed, this is not a huge issue, but the tenant should double-check to ensure that all is included as part of the lease.

A lease with a fixed end date gives certainty of term for both the landlord and the tenant. It specifies the exact day the tenancy will end. The advantage here is that neither party has to give notice to terminate the lease, it simply ends on the specified date. During a fixed term lease the landlord cannot increase the rent, or change any other terms of the lease unless he specifically reserves the right in the agreement, and the tenant agrees to the changes.
It is recommended for landlords to elect not permitting water filled furnishings on the property due to the potential damage they may cause if they should puncture. Chances are that the amount of damage a waterbed can cause, which is usually between 196 to 235 gallons, would exceed the amount held for the security deposit. Therefore, it is in the landlords best interest to not allow this type of furniture.
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.

Under the Rental of Residential Property Act, a landlord is not responsible for damages to a tenant's personal property. If a tenant wishes to be compensated for losses or damages to their personal belongings, the tenant should obtain tenant insurance. If a tenant believes he has a cause of action against the landlord for personal injury and/or damages to personal property, the tenant may pursue the matter in the Supreme Court of Prince Edward Island.
A rental agreement is extremely important for any landlord wanting to rent their property. Even if you are renting to a friend or family member, or just for a short time, a residential lease agreement can help save you from a lot of problems if (when) things don't work out. A rental contract should outline all your expectations for the renter, and it helps keep both the renter AND the landlord responsible and accountable for their part of the agreement.
When the tenant has broken the lease conditions and vacated prior to the expiry of the lease term, the landlord may charge a "rerent levy" to recover their lost rental income and costs associated with finding a new tenant. It is usually only charged when the term of the lease is six months or more, and some jurisdictions do not permit the landlord to charge a rerent levy. The amount charged must be reasonable given the circumstances, and must not exceed the damages that the landlord suffers from the tenant leaving early.

A: The pet policy should clearly outline the type of pets that are allowed (if any), how many of each type, and the expected care and cleanliness to be maintained if a tenant will keep a pet on the premises. You can also specify any rules regarding the pet and whether you have the right to change the pet agreement as long as you give proper notice (at least 30 days).
Section 1. Subject to the terms and conditions in this Lease Agreement, the Landlord rents to the Tenant, and the Tenant rents from the Landlord, for residential purposes only, the premises located at Condo Address (the “Premises”), together with all the fixtures, appliances, furniture, furnishings and personal property upon or in the Premises set forth or otherwise referred to on Schedule A attached hereto and hereby incorporated into this Lease Agreement (such fixtures, appliances, furniture, furnishings and personal property, collectively the “Furnishings”).
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: By default this Agreement includes the landlord’s right to enter the property at reasonable times to inspect the property, make improvements or repairs, as well as enter in times of emergency.  As the landlord, it is a good idea to give reasonable notice to your tenant before entering the property. For example, in the event of a pipe leaking, you can enter the property but it is wise to give notice to the tenant.
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.
If a landlord fails to provide the Standard Lease within 21 days after a renter has made a request in writing, the renter may: (i) withhold a maximum of one month’s rent; or (ii) give 60 days’ notice to terminate a yearly or fixed-term tenancy early. If the landlord fails to provide the Standard Lease within 30 days after the renter has begun withholding rent, the renter does not have to repay the one month’s rent that was withheld.
A: Normally, the tenant pays for all utilities but in some cases the landlord will pay for trash and sometimes water. However, you can specify which utilities (electricity, gas, telephone, television, water, trash, sewage, or any custom expense you wish to enter) are to be paid by the tenant, and which ones are paid by the landlord. Generally speaking, if the property has an individual meter to track gas, water, and electricity usage for the tenant, then the tenant will pay for his or her own utilities usage. If there is no meter and utilities are shared, the landlord should disclose this in the lease agreement.
Section 1. Subject to the terms and conditions in this Lease Agreement, the Landlord rents to the Tenant, and the Tenant rents from the Landlord, for residential purposes only, the premises located at Condo Address (the “Premises”), together with all the fixtures, appliances, furniture, furnishings and personal property upon or in the Premises set forth or otherwise referred to on Schedule A attached hereto and hereby incorporated into this Lease Agreement (such fixtures, appliances, furniture, furnishings and personal property, collectively the “Furnishings”).

A: If the housing was built prior to 1978, the lease/rental agreement will contain a disclosure page on lead-based paint and/or lead-based paint hazards. There is a federally approved disclosure form (“Disclosure of Information on Lead-Based Paint and/or Lead Based Paint Hazards”) and information pamphlet (“Protect Your Family From Lead In Your Home”) that you can download.
MCW shall not be responsible in case of delay in delivery. No shipments will be initiated between Friday afternoon and Sunday evening, as well as Canadian Statutory Holidays. Ownership of and risk to the goods is transferred from MCW to you when goods are received by the carrier. Goods travel at your own risk. You must check the state of the package when delivered, and you must report any damages to the carrier on the delivery sheet as well as to MCW within 5 (five) business days from receipt.
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.
23.1 We reserve the right to modify, in whole or in part, the terms of use in order to adapt to changes in our industry, technological changes, changes in payment method, and or changes in the legislation.

We strongly recommend that VISITORS read all the changes to our terms of use.
Section 8: The Tenant is assigned (1) parking space. Parking space is designated as space # Parking Space #. The Tenant may only park a vehicle that is registered in the Tenants’ name. The Tenant may not assign, sublet, or allow any other person to use this space. This space is exclusively used for the parking of passenger automobiles by the Tenant. No other type of vehicle or item may be stored in this space without prior written consent of the Landlord. The Tenant may not wash, repair, or paint in this space or at any other common area on the premises. Any vehicle that is leaking any substance must not be parked anywhere on the premises.
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.

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 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.
If a "Fixed" term is selected, the leasing relationship may still continue after expiry if both the landlord and the tenant wish it to. In some jurisdictions, statute dictates that it will become a Periodic term lease, usually of the month-to-month variety, though this may vary. In other jurisdictions, the Fixed term lease may become a "tenancy at will" or a "tenancy at sufferance" when it expires, which lasts only as long as both parties wish it to, and is not subject to as much legal protection as a Periodic lease. If you wish to terminate all rights under a Fixed term lease as soon as the lease expires, you must serve proper notice before the end of the lease term, in accordance with local statute.
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.
Prior to April 30, 2018, residential landlords should familiarize themselves with the Standard Lease including the General Information Appendix. Landlords should also consider preparing their own customized versions of the Standard Lease containing any relevant special or property-specific clauses in anticipation of tenant requests for the Standard Lease. Any additions or variations to the Standard Lease must comply with the RTA.

The advantage here is that neither party has to give notice to terminate the lease, it simply ends on the specified date. During a fixed term lease the landlord cannot increase the rent, or change any other terms of the lease unless he specifically reserves the right in the agreement, and the tenant agrees to the changes.
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.

immediately notify the manager of the buildings of which the Premises is a part of in person, by office telephone at Condo Office Phone Number, or by emailing Condo Office Email Address, and thereafter the Landlord by cellular telephone at Owner Phone, of any emergencies, dangerous conditions or defects in and about the Premises or Furnishings of which either Tenant becomes aware
The lease should be reviewed for early termination clauses that allow for it to be broken with no penalty. If no clauses are found, the tenant may attempt to have legal clauses added to allow for the lease to be broken without penalty. Clauses are provided at the discretion of the landlord, or property management company if acting on the behalf of the best interest of the landlord. Dependent on the reasons for the tenant to break the lease, some states provide options that would not hold the tenant liable even when not stated in the Standard Residential Lease Agreement.
Tenancy Agreements: A tenancy agreement is a contract between a landlord and tenant that outlines the terms of the tenancy – it’s an important legal document. These tenancy agreement templates accurately reflect the Residential Tenancy Act and the Manufactured Home Park Tenancy Act, as well as any accompanying regulations. The Residential Tenancy Branch (RTB) does not provide warranties on these templates.
It is acknowledged that the Landlord is not liable for these occurrences. It is acknowledged that the Tenants’ insurance policy shall solely indemnify the Tenant for any losses sustained. Tenants’ failure to maintain said policy shall be a complete waiver of the Tenants’ right to seek damages against the Landlord for the above stated losses. The parties acknowledge that the premises are not to be considered a security building which would hold the Landlord to a higher degree of care.

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.
