Many landlords have a standard form of lease (contract or residential tenancy greement) for tenants to sign. You must still read it carefully to understand what you are agreeing to.
Once you sign the lease, you are bound by its terms, and you will risk a penalty if you break one of those terms.
When you are reading the lease, think about items that may NOT be mentioned as well as those that are mentioned. Use this section of the website to see if the lease will cover your needs.
If you are not happy with a part of the lease, or you would like to add something, you can ask the landlord to change or add to the lease. His or her response may help you to decide whether or not you are willing to be legally bound by the law and the terms of this lease.
