look out for in your rental agreement

In this article, we’ll walk you through some of the most important things you should look out for in your rental agreement, to make sure you understand every aspect of your future accommodation arrangement.

Check all the parties involved are included and that they all sign the rental agreement

This may seem a a simple aspect, but an important topic you must consider. A rental agreement must include, first of all, the names of all the owners, and the tenant. If there are several owners or tenants as part of the renting agreement, it is mandatory that they all appear in the contract. Otherwise, you risk the rental contract to become null. Therefore, make sure that full legal names of all the owners, and of all the tenants in the same time, as well as their address are on the contract.

Check rental start date and termination date

Another thing to check in the rental agreement is that there is clear information regarding the start and end dates of the rental agreement. At the same time, the description of the conditions under which the contract can be terminated should also be clearly reflected. If there are penalty clauses, check whether or not their activation is linked to the termination of the contract. If so, make sure you correctly understand the conditions in which these penalties may be due.
