Finding an apartment is the first step in realizing your new house goals. It’s the time to start thinking about how much of your present furnishings you’ll keep, where you’ll put them, and whether or not you’ll need any additional pieces. It’s also the moment to sign your lease agreement, which formally binds you as a tenant.

You should never sign a lease agreement without reviewing it first. Here’s what you should look out for:

The Numbers

A typical lease agreement has a slew of figures, including dates, costs, and addresses. Prospective renters should double-check each of these figures to verify that they are both correct and fair.

Strange Clauses

Check for any provisions that seem odd or unreasonable. If your lease prohibits you from returning home after midnight on weekdays, for example, you should inquire about this excessively strange and intrusive provision.

The Source

Most landlords don’t write their leases from scratch. Instead, they use standard lease templates. However, whether you live in a big city or a tiny hamlet, it’s a good idea to double-check the source of your lease agreement. You’ll want to verify that everything in the agreement is compliant with your local legislation.
