Leases and Legislation


A lease is a contract between a landlord and tenant which specifies the terms of your living arrangement. It should outline the cost of your rent with/without utilities, your move-in-date, the length of your stay, rent due dates, house rules and any furniture, appliances or repairs that the landlord has promised to provide. Make sure to keep a copy of this document for your own protection and check out your rights under the Landlord and Tenant Act.
