Some things renters can’t break – or probably can’t break. Check out the below discussion!
1. Rental Lease
Basically, before an apartment is leased to a renter, there are different types of agreements. Both the renter and the landlord need to enter into these agreements. These agreements are Leases.
A lease is a legal contract between the tenants (lessee) and the landlord (lessor). Though some agreements which are yearlong allows for payment on a monthly basis, it does not represent the fact that the agreement is month-by-month.
There are three main types of lease, namely;
- Gross lease or Full-service lease.
- Net Lease.
- Modified Gross lease or Modified Net Lease.
There are different terms including in a lease, this are
- Complete list of the Renters Name.
- Cost of Rent and the Payment Due Date.
- A well Defined Rental or Lease Term
- Deposits and Late Fees (if any).
- Right to Entry Terms.
- Maintenance and Repairs.
- Limit of Occupancy.
- Pet Rules.
- Rules on Illegal Behavior.
- Miscellaneous and Restrictions.
Tenants probably can’t break Leases because of repercussions such as;
- You will be required to pay the rent for the remaining months on your lease
- You can be subject to legal action from your landlord, and/or
- Get a negative mark on your credit report
2. Rules on What you can Do in your Home
The fact that you are occupying an apartment does not give you the absolute right to do as you want in the apartment. Leases always contain activities and behavior allowed in an apartment. Tenants who share walls with other tenants are required to maintain a certain level of quietness, failure to do so might lead to the landlord initiating a quit lease action against the tenant, also renters have to make sure that the apartments are kept clean. Any damage to the building due to lack of cleanliness is paid for by the renters, more reason why renters are not likely to break this rule.
3. Renters Can’t Break Having a Roommate
If as a renter, you desire to accommodate or allow a roommate to move in with you due to financial difficulties. You can’t just break the agreement by bringing in the person without receiving the permission of the landlord. By law, the landlord has the right to vet the new roommate. Furthermore, the landlord has no business with the new roommate if he or she fails to meet up with the agreed financial obligation, as long as the landlord’s rent is complete.
