Frequently Asked QuestionsWhat is a Residential Lease?A Residential Lease is a legally binding contract between a Landlord and tenant. The Lease gives a tenant the right to use and enjoy the described residential property in exchange for money. It outlines the rights and responsibilities of both the Landlord and Tenant during the tenancy.
Governments have enacted laws to protect tenants by ensuring them a minimum set of rights. A Residential Lease cannot take away these basic rights. When should I use a residential lease?A written lease should be used whenever property is being rented out. The lease reduces the potential for disputes by clearly outlining the responsibilities of both the Tenant and Landlord.

Renting a room, on the other hand, means the Tenant will likely share part of the accommodations with the Landlord or other tenants. The kitchen, bathroom, and house entrance are common examples of shared space.
