Every rental and tenancy situation needs a lease agreement, whether commercial or residential. Your lease will cover each parties’ responsibilities to each other and the rules that dictate the rental relationship. It should include items like how long the tenancy lasts, the rental fee due each month, occupancy limits, how maintenance and repairs will be handled, whether pets are allowed, and other items like deposits and fees.
Just like any other contract, your lease must be written properly for it to cover all the bases. And all of the free or near-free online lease templates—claiming to encompass everything you need in a lease agreement—may sound tempting to save a few bucks. But these seldom do what you need them to, because what does your cheap lease really cost you when you realize that it’s missing a critical clause? Or doesn’t comply with local and state law? Or doesn’t give you a proper remedy when the other party violates it? The short answer? No one-size-fits-all solution is going to cut it.
Each tenancy situation is different and requires a unique contract to be successful. That’s why every single lease agreement we write is tailor-made to your situation, location, property, and other distinct needs. No matter what you throw our way, our real-estate lawyers will be able to craft a lease to your specifications. That’s what you’ll get when you turn to the folks who’ve written hundreds of leases over the years.
We’ll be with you every step of the way to explain and simplify, meaning that you’ll not only get what you need in a lease, but you’ll understand it, too. And if an issue does arise, we’ll be here to advocate for you at every turn. So give us a call to find out how we can streamline the leasing process for you.
