A Guide to Rental Agreements

Contracts written to specify the conditions expected from property owners and those intending to rent the property for a short period of time are called rental agreements. To ensure that the property owners and lessees are in the right terms, the contact between them is managed and controlled by contract law. The contract specifies all related factors to the agreement including the property, terms of renting, payment for the specified time, the property owner and the lessee and other important information.

When renting property like real estates, farming land, residential places, storage facilities, business premises, space for parking and other reasons, rental agreements are required for all these situations. Most rental contracts demand that a tenant give a deposit which is a specified amount of money that will be given back to the tenant at the end of the contract if the premises are in good state. For leasing property for long periods of time, a lease contract is used instead of rental contract but it includes all information that a rental agreement includes.

Contracts based on a month to month payment of rent are not given a specific amount of time and is renewed each month until one party either tenant or property owner notices the other party of intentions to vacate with a minimum number of days left before renewal date required. Another type of agreement called one-way lease agreement is used for month to moth renting but with the requirement that a tenant will stay for a minimum number of months before they can terminate the contract fails to which leads being charged a fee or being denied the deposit. Agreements can be issued in scenarios where a tenant specifies the length of time they will rent the property and that expect that all agreed upon conditions stay constant for this period of time and are followed by both tenant and landlord.

These agreements are regulated by an appropriate authority and thus are under the laws of a country thereby it is important to read and understand them to avoid legal actions taken against you for breaking the rules and as such do not sign agreements having rules that are too harsh for you. Making sure that property is insured and that the landlord is the legal owner as well as comparing the terms to the terms set by the authorizing body is helpful to avoid unwanted situations like results of accidents.
