Online Lease Agreements: Why Landlords Should Be Wary

Are you planning on renting your first University Park rental property? If so, one of the worse things that you can do is download and use a free lease agreement that you found online.

This is a bad move to make because a free lease agreement hasn’t been created just for your business and if you don’t have one created just for your specific needs, you may encounter a series of problems that could have been avoided had you hired an attorney to create a lease for you.

What Should Be Included In Your Lease?

Unlike other lease agreements, your lease should be comprehensive and include the following information:

  • Will pets be allowed?
  • Names of all tenants
  • Limits on occupancy
  • Term of the tenancy
  • When is rent due?
  • How should rent be paid?
  • Deposits and fees
  • Repairs and maintenance
  • Entry to rental property
  • Restrictions on tenant illegal activity

These are just a few specifics that you should consider adding to your lease. Overall, your goal should be to make your lease as comprehensive as possible to eliminate any confusion that may arise, or questions regarding what a tenant can or cannot do in your rental property.
