A lease agreement (or rental agreement) is a contract, traditionally written between the owner of a property (the landlord) and the tenant who wishes to have temporary possession of the property. At a minimum, the lease agreement outlines the parties involved, the property being leased, the rental term and the financial obligations of the tenant.
Who: The parties involved in the contract include the landlord (or their agent, such as a property manager) and the tenant (variously referred to as the renter or lessee) and are identified within the contract. A residential lease agreement specifies whether a tenant is living alone, or with additional occupants. A legally-strong lease agreement should specify the rights and obligations for each party involved. For instance, the landlord has the right to not permit pets or subletting. Likewise, the tenant also has legal rights, such as a reasonable right to privacy and advance notice before the landlord enters the rental unit.
What: Rented residential real estate may be a portion of or all of almost any real property, such as a house, apartment building, condominium or any other physical space. The leased property can include or exclude specific rooms, common areas, off-street parking, or communal facilities (such as laundry rooms or a communal pool), and the like. The lease agreement should specify both the location and the conditions of use.
When: The length of the lease term may be for either a fixed term (e.g. one year) or periodic (e.g. month-to-month). Whatever the term, it should be specified within the lease agreement.
