Uses Lease Builder
Numerous documents provided on our DC forms page supply the background and details you need to ensure a professional lease that will protect your real estate investment. The easy to use Lease Builder Wizard lets you quickly enter terms, select options for rent payments, and set expectations for tenants’ care of your property.
Green, shaded DC Assist instruction boxes guide you in making the right choices when DC laws must be applied. For instance, in Step 3 of the Lease Builder Wizard, a DC Assist will explain that landlords may not charge tenants more than the equivalent of a month's rent as a security deposit; further, the deposit must be held in an interest-bearing account.
