The written rental agreement between the landlord and the tenant is an important legal document. This agreement should be read and understood by both parties before it is signed. If either party has questions or wishes to have the terms of the rental agreement changed, these matters should be resolved before the agreement is signed. This document will control your agreement. Neither party should rely on oral statements that are contrary to the terms of the written rental agreement. If the rental agreement is for a period of a year or more, it must be in writing.
