Cracking The Lease Agreement Code: What To Ask Before You Sign

Real Estate
Many people are wisely choosing rental houses before plunging into a purchase. Rental houses can help you save money and won't tie you down to an astronomical mortgage. However, although renting is temporary, you will be constrained by certain lease requirements.

Before signing any papers, you'll want to make sure you clearly understand and accept the terms of the leasing agreement, or else you may come across unexpected (and unpleasant) surprises later on.

Know The Basic Conditions

Basic terms of a lease agreement for a rental house are the length of rental and cost, due dates and methods for payments, and penalties in case of late or bad payment. When reviewing these with the landlord, inquire about potential grace periods and contact information in case of extenuating circumstances or an emergency.

What Payments Will The Tenant Be Responsible For?

Some rental houses have an all-inclusive rent price, but many will require the tenant to pay for water, trash, electricity, and other bills. Make sure the lease agreement clearly states whose responsibility it is to pay for these items.

Your agreement should also mention the protocol for repairs and maintenance costs. Some landlords and agreements can be very particular, so make sure to understand the terms completely. Some landlords may require that you only use certain companies or repairmen that they approve of, while others are more lenient.

Are There Any Additional Restrictions Or Rules?

Unfortunately, rental homes don't come with the same freedom of owning your own property. Landlords often have rules concerning pets, number of tenants, painting and landscaping, satellite dishes, and a number of others that may clash with your lifestyle. Sometimes these rules can be negotiated, and it's best to bring up any problems before signing rather than sneaking in a third cat three months later.

Know The Terms Of The Security Deposit

It may be a ways into the future, but when the time comes you'll be glad you took the time to ask. Some landlords are very strict on security deposits and you may as well kiss yours goodbye. Sometimes it is only possible to get a partial refund, due to the natural wear and tear the home will undoubtedly be under during your residency. In some cases you may be able to repair damage or clean the premises yourself in order to collect the money.

What Is The Result Of Breaking The Agreement?

There are many reasons why you may suddenly have to break your lease—a family emergency, incredible job offer, or even for health reasons. Some landlords can be forgiving or offer you options such as finding a replacement tenant, or they may be more lenient if you give them enough notice.

Discuss the terms of breaking the lease on your rental home with your landlord, and it's wise to check your local state tenancy laws as well. State law trumps the landlord's, so being informed pays off.
