For many college and university students, this is their first time living away from home. Some choose to live in residences to make the transition easier. However some schools don't have residences or don't have enough room, so plenty of new students are forced to comb through the listings for real estate in Windsor ON looking for a place to live. Almost all students living off-campus rent apartments, and renting an apartment always involves signing a lease or a rental agreement. To make sure your landlord isn't taking advantage of you, here's what your lease agreement should include:
A Paper Contract
Some landlords may want you to enter into a verbal agreement for your apartment. Though technically they are legally binding, you will be much better protected if you get signatures on paper for your Toronto condo apartment rental. That way if there are problems you can easily take it to the tenancy board.
A Copy of Your Tenant Rights
Some provinces require this, others don't, but it's good policy for your landlord to give you a copy of your rights as a tenant, which are guaranteed by law. It shows good faith.
On your lease agreement it should say how much the rent will be, which utilities are included in the rent, and give a guarantee that it will not increase during the term of the lease. It should lay out on what day the landlord will collect payments from his cottage rentals in PEI. If the landlord requires a security deposit, the agreement should lay out how much and how you can get it back.
This is the length of the rental agreement. Usually landlords like to rent their properties on a year by year basis. It should also mention that your term will be automatically renewed if you don't hand in notice to the landlord that you are leaving your Liberty Village condos. The lease agreement should tell you how much notice you need to give the landlord and under what conditions you can sublet your apartment.
Responsibilities and Rules
The lease should state who is responsible for the upkeep on the condos for rent in Puerto Vallarta (usually the landlord). It should give you contact information for your landlord and the conditions under which he is renting to you (for example, no pets, no smoking, no boarders). It should tell you under what circumstances the landlord can enter your apartment and what procedure he must follow for doing so. The lease should also tell you what the landlord can do if you fail to pay your rent or to follow the rules laid out in the lease agreement, and how the two of you can resolve any disputes you may have.
