Residential leases can be complicated. Residential leases contain conditions such as what the renter can do with the home as well as who can be in the home. Other examples of clauses within a residential lease include renters requiring prior written consent before altering the home, either verbally or in writing. The reason for these conditions is because of the additional burden on the property. Landlords want to limit damage and liability on themselves. Therefore, many of these clauses are set forth to protect the landlord. However, some clauses may not be necessary and may be overly burdensome to the renter. In fact, some clauses, if left in the residential lease, may nullify the lease altogether.
Therefore, it is always good advice to properly analyze a residential lease when signing it. A lawyer comes in handy in this particular instance. An attorney can review and/draft the residential lease in such a way to ensure the express language within the residential lease allowing the renter or landlord to obtain relief if the relationship turns sour.
