A lease agreement is a contract between a landlord and a tenant that states what the tenant will pay monthly for rent and for how long. With our experience and deep knowledge, we help you draft the obligations and responsibilities of the landlord (lessor) and the tenant (lessee). It is important for tenants to understand that a lease agreement can be altered prior to being signed. If there is something that you do not understand or agree to, or if there is a provision that needs to be altered, discuss it with the landlord prior to signing the lease.
Once your lease agreement is signed, it governs what the landlord and the tenant can and cannot do during the term of the lease. The lease agreement acts as a legal, binding contract between the landlord and tenant and will be used as such by the court if any legal proceedings arise between the two parties. If there is more than one tenant responsible for the lease, a landlord can enforce the lease against all the tenants should the need arise, so it is important for everyone involved to understand what their responsibilities are under the terms of the lease.
