Tenancy Agreement Details

Q. What is a residential tenancy agreement? A. A residential tenancy agreement is a legally binding contract made between a landlord and tenant. The tenancy agreement gives a tenant the right to exclusive use and enjoyment of the described residential property in exchange for money paid to the landlord. Additionally, the tenancy agreement outlines the rights and responsibilities of both the landlord and tenant during the tenancy agreement term. LawDepot provides a written Residential Tenancy Agreement.

This tenancy agreement software has the flexibility to let you quickly create the tenancy agreement document you want. It does this by providing many options with appropriate defaults.
One common default is 'Do Not Specify'. This default means that the finished agreement will not have a clause dealing with that topic. The benefit of not specifying is that you get a shorter and simpler document; however, the document will be less precise.
If you want to fill in a particular item after you have printed the document, you can enter underscore characters (e.g. _____).
Location of Property: Q. What is meant by the "Act?" A. The "Act" refers to the legislation governing residential tenancy agreements in your jurisdiction. After you select the Location of Property when you are filling out the Tenancy Agreement Details, you will see a link beneath your selection to the governing legislation for the jurisdiction you have selected. It is not necessary to specifically state the name of the "Act" in your contract, as the relevant legislation is satisfactorily identified by the "severability" clause of your tenancy agreement.

Note: You are creating a residential tenancy agreement where tenancy is for a term of 3 years or less.
Landlord Information

Q. Who are the parties to the tenancy agreement? A. The parties to a tenancy agreement are the lessor, also called the landlord, and the lessee, also called the tenant. The lessor owns the property and allows the lessee to use the property in exchange for monetary payments called rent.
