Rental agreements can be quite cumbersome and tedious for both the landlord and the tenant. However it is this document that is the legal binding document that rules the renting of any property. It can be a non formal verbal agreement or it can be a properly documented agreement. Verbal agreements are only entered into where the landlord and the tenant are well known to each other. But most agreements are formal.    The rental agreement should cover all aspects of the terms of the rental starting with the name and address of the property that is being rented. Secondly the name and address of the landlord and the tenant must be clearly stated. This is followed by the term of the agreement (i.e. Number of years that the agreement applies to) and the rental amount. This is followed by the payment term whether it is monthly, quarterly, half yearly or annual. In certain cases the landlord may retain a deposit amount and this amount needs to be stated in the agreement. It also follows whether on return of the deposit will it include a certain percentage as mark up or not.    All the other terms regard the terms of occupancy. Which can include if the tenant can sublet a portion of the place, keep pets who all can live in the place, who will be responsible for paying the utility bills, getting the place painted, responsibility for carrying out minor and major repairs, etc.    There are a lot of standard rental agreement forms that one can now download from the net. Certain states require that any rental agreement must follow the rental guidelines of the state and these agreements can be purchased from the state offices.

This is a contract that is signed by the renter and the property owner. This agreement protects both the owner and the renter in case of any violation from any side. The contract defines the terms and conditions for renting and identifies the time period for the agreement, rent amount, parties that sign the agreement, property to be leased, conditions for the repair etc. The property that is to be leased is known as lessor and the renter is said to be the lessee. It also identifies the party that will pay the fee of lawyers in case of any lawsuit.

Agreement for car rentals may define limitations on the use of car. There are certain restrictions that do not allow the car to leave the country without the permission of the owner. It also defines the condition in which the car will be returned after the rent period is over. Those people that have driving license can sign a rental agreement.

In case of real estate rentals the agreement include the specific details about other issues. For example, for what purpose the property will be used (housing, agriculture, business etc), how many people can live in the house if the real estate is used for housing purpose, what types of business activities are allowed there etc. It also defines the rights of the tenant to ensure privacy and provide protection to the landlord against any type of damage to the property.
