What Does Lease Agreement Look Like
My lease (available on my blog) is a bit more robust. Much better than any verbal agreement. As someone who has praised a LOT, I find these agreements very fair. I had two landlords who (as I felt) artificially raised rents after a year because they knew it was easier for them to find a new tenant than for me to move apartments (which I did anyway). Knowing what the future rent increase would look like (assuming I paid on time) would have been a big incentive for me after these two experiences. I also like a rental agreement that clearly states that the apartment will be professionally cleaned before I arrive and that I will be expected to have it professionally cleaned at the end.
