What are the responsibilities of the renter and those of the landlord?
These are the types of properties that can be rented: apartment, house, a room, a condo, a mobile home, a basement, townhouse or a duplex.
Remember that the property you are using on a temporary basis belongs to someone else. The time spent in the rental is overseen by a rental agreement/contract between the renter and the landlord. This rental agreement/contract is very important. It is provided by the landlord and describes the responsibilities the specifics of what the renter will do and what the landlord will do. It will also address consequences for not adhering to the agreement/contract. Be sure you or a support person understands the particulars of the agreement/contract before you sign it.
Once the renter signs the agreement/contract he/she must adhere to it.
