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.

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.
Otherwise known as the “landlord” and “tenant”, decide who will be named in the lease. This is an important question that is asked to tenants that will be living together such as those in a romantic relationship. A general rule is if the rent can only be supported by both persons’ incomes, then it’s advised that both individuals are named as tenants.

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 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. 

A: In the event the Tenant defaults by failing to pay rent, the Landlord may give written notice to the Tenant to terminate the agreement. The Landlord must give the Tenant adequate warning in writing a certain number of days number of days before terminating the agreement. The notice period can vary by state so we recommend you check your local laws. Read these guidelines if you aren’t sure what to do when a Tenant is late paying the rent.
A lease agreement is beneficial for many reasons. It clarifies the obligations of both parties during a residential tenancy so each person knows what is expected of them during the rental relationship. For example, the tenant may be responsible for paying rent on the first of every month, while the landlord is expected to keep the property in good condition.

A typical rental is either annual or month-to-month, and the amount of rent may be different for long-term renters (because of lower turnover costs). Leaving a long-term lease before its expiration could result in penalties, or even the cost of the entire agreed period (if the landlord is unable to find a suitable replacement tenant, after diligent pursuit). If a tenant stays beyond the end of a lease for a term of years (one or more), then the parties may agree that the lease will be automatically renewed, or it may simply convert to a tenancy at will (month-to-month) at the pro-rated monthly cost of the previous annual lease. If a tenant at will is given notice to quit the premises, and refuses to do so, the landlord then begins eviction proceedings. In many places it is completely illegal to change locks on doors, or remove personal belongings, let alone forcibly eject a person, without a court order of eviction. There may be strict rules of procedure, and stiff penalties (triple damages, plus attorneys' fees) for violations.
In addition to the above, a car rental agreement may include various restrictions on the way a renter can use a car, and the condition in which it must be returned. For example, some rentals cannot be driven off-road, or out of the country, or towing a trailer, without specific permission. In New Zealand you may have to specifically endorse a promise that the car will not be driven onto Ninety-mile Beach (because of the hazardous tides).

Landlord acknowledges that Tenant has a right to allow guests at the Property from time to time. Thus, Tenant may allow guests into the Property for up to fourteen (14) consecutive days without requiring written consent from the Landlord. Guests residing at the Property for longer than fourteen (14) days may only do so with prior written consent from the Landlord.

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.
