Under "terms", there should also be mention of the length of the agreement, and the date that the lease starts and ends. The lease renewal information should also be there somewhere, along with mention of rent increases: when, how much to expect, and how much notice must be given. If you think you may want to sublet your apartment, it should be stated in the lease that you are allowed to do so.

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.
Section 12. The Tenant is entitled to quiet enjoyment of the Premises and Furnishings. The Tenant and her visitors will not use the Premises or Furnishings or any other indoor or outdoor areas of the building property in such a way to: (1) violate any law or ordinance; (2) damage property; or (3) create a nuisance by interfering with the quiet enjoyment of any other resident of the building property.
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.
