When filling out a Lease, know who belongs in the property.


So often when Landlords fill out a Lease, they are less then specific and some things are not covered and that is a mistake.

When I fill out a Lease, I use the California Association of Realtors (CAR) Lease. It has been created by Lawyers who are experts in Landlord Tenant law. I never change the wording of the Lease, but there are area’s in the lease that need to be filled out. These blank spaces are PROPERTY SPECIFIC and each Landlord will have different reasons for the way they fill them out.

Example

For example, on the CAR form it has a section at the top that allows a Landlord to name the people, who should be using the property.

#1 B say’s “The premises are for the sole use as a personal residence by the following named person(s) only”. This is a very important section of the Lease and the people who are named in this section should be the only people who are living in the property.

For the Landlords Protection

This section of the Lease protects the Landlord from a Tenant bringing in other people that have not been screened to live in the property. Many Landlords may think that just because they have the people who are renting the property on the top of the Lease, they are safe, but that is not true. The people at the top of the Lease are the responsible party(s), but the people who are actually designated to live in the property, must be Named and the specific amount of children need to be specified. Once you put these names in the Lease, you will know who will be using the property on a daily basis. Now that does not mean that visitors can’t come to the property, but those visitors cannot move in.

Pets

Another important section that deals with use of the Property is section #13 and that deals with pets. If a Landlord allows Pets, then the specific number of pets and the type of pets that are allowed and the breed of pets to be in the property is very important. As a Landlord, you need to be cognizant of what type of pets and the number of pets for insurance purposes. You don’t want to find that after the Tenants move in, they have turned the property into a Zoo. I recently had the experience in one of the properties that I manage, where I was doing the semiannual smoke detector check and I found a couple of extra dogs in cages inside the home. The lease called for 2 specific breed dogs, so I had to have them get rid of the other dogs. If I did not specify the amount and the breed, it could have been much more difficult to have the dogs removed.

These are two examples of area’s in the Lease that need to be filled out accurately. If these area’s are left blank or not accurate, then a Landlord is leaving themselves open for problems down the road.

What my clients are saying  

5 reviews 5.0 star rating 1/21/2016 I was tired of using a large management team to manage my investment property. I felt I was always on the back burner. I was recommended to Tony from a business associate, he assured me I would be very pleased. Well that was an understatement, Tony is amazing. He's above all honest and always available for my concerns. I'm not as well versed as other investors with property management and maintenance and tenant relations, Tony has been an excellent partner and has guided me through quite a bit of needed repairs and worked far beyond what was expected to help turn my little investment into quite a prosperous investment, If what your looking for is prompt return calls, honest direction and someone very knowledgeable with general contractors and real estate laws, Tony is your man.
