What should be included in the lease agreement?

Landlords must disclose

  • The name and street address of the landlord or agent the tenant is to contact for any issues during the tenancy
  • Any utilities that are not included in the rent and also inform the tenant how the charges are allocated to them if there are not separate meters
  • Any uncorrected municipal code violations to prospective tenants

It is a great idea to have the University Legal Clinic review your lease for free so you can be sure your lease has everything it needs to protect you!
