Rental Documents Landlords Need

Jan. 4, 2023

rental documents landlords need - innovative property solutions

Rental documents are an important part of the landlord-tenant relationship. These documents outline the terms and conditions of the tenancy and serve as a record of the landlord and tenant agreement. In this article, experts at Innovative Property Solutions will discuss some of the vital rental documents landlords should have in place.

Rental Agreement or Lease

A rental agreement or lease is a legally binding document that outlines the terms and conditions of the tenancy. It should include information such as the length of the tenancy, the rental amount, the due date and frequency of rent payments, and any rules or restrictions on the use of the property.

It is essential to have a written rental agreement or lease in place to protect the landlord's interests and to ensure that the tenant understands their responsibilities.

Security Deposit Receipt

The deposit is the sum that the renter pays at the lease’s beginning to cover any damages to the property or unpaid rent at the end of the tenancy. Landlords should provide the tenant with a receipt for the security deposit, including the amount and the purpose for which it will be used.

Move-in Checklist

A move-in checklist with pictures is an important document that details the rental property’s condition at the beginning of the tenancy. The landlord should walk through the property without the tenant and photograph any damages or issues that need to be addressed or exist.

The tenant should also be given the opportunity to document the condition with pictures and video, and the landlord should keep a copy for their records.

Lead Paint Disclosure

If the rental property was built before 1978, federal law requires the landlord to disclose the presence of lead-based paint to the tenant.

It’s beneficial for landlords to know their rights and responsibilities when dealing with an end-of-tenancy cleaning. There are certain risks when your rental home is inhabited by tenants which is why it’s even more vital to check your unit after the tenancy ends. 

End of tenancy cleaning is crucial and landlords must make sure that their rental property is in superb condition once a renter moves out of the unit. Commonly, disputes regarding the security deposit deductions and refunds happen during this stage but when an end of tenancy cleaning is accomplished, conflicts are reduced.
