Contracts between a landlord and tenant can outline every detail of a lease or rental agreement. Payment of rent, the responsibility of repairs and utilities, and the time period a tenant can remain in the unit can all be detailed in a contract. In order to avoid any confusion or misunderstanding, a contract that addresses the specifics of these details needs to be well-drafted by a legal professional. Both sides should also be aware of how
negotiating a contract can help further protect each party.
When a contract is signed and not understood, or if it is entered into with one party not being clear about the details, disputes can be even more complicated than need be. A dispute over who is responsible for snow removal or heating costs can lead to litigation when these issues could have been clearly defined in a legally drafted contract. Situations may arise where a landlord may try to raise the rent or a tenant fails to pay in a timely manner. With a contract in place, these issues can be handled quickly and without room for error. Neither party should consider entering into a rental agreement without a legally drafted contract in place.
