Rental Agreements

A rental agreement is another term for a lease agreement.  The rental agreement provides the terms between the landlord and the tenant concerning the rental of the property.  It includes the amount of rent, identifies the property, identifies the parties and specifies the term of the rental.

Additionally, a rental agreement normally will specify in detail the rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant.  These may include:

  • Who can live with the tenant including visitor duration
  • What utilities are included in the rent
  • Under what circumstances the tenant my sublet the property
  • How the tenant may use the common areas and parking spaces
  • The term and frequency of rental payments
  • Late payment charges and eviction notification
  • What options exist at the end of the rental agreement
  • And possibly other conditions and responsibilities

The rental agreement is bound by the laws of the State where the property is located.  Many states provide for basic tenant rights that cannot be negated by the contract.  For instance, some States provide for treble damages if a rental deposit is not returned within a specified time after the agreement ends.  Other laws specify the conditions that allow for eviction and the procedure the landlord must follow.
