RESIDENTIAL LEASE/RENTAL AGREEMENT
This agreement made this day of , 20, is between (hereinafter called “Management” or “us” or “we”) and (hereinafter collectively called “Resident” or “you”). Management leases to Resident, and Resident rents from Management, residential unit located at (hereinafter called the “Property”), under the following conditions: 1.TERM: The initial term of this lease shall be () months, beginning , 20, and ending , 20. At the conclusion of this term, this lease shall automatically renew on a month-to-month basis. 2.RENT: Rent is payable monthly in advance without notice or demand at the rate of DOLLARS ($) per month, on the day of each and every month during the initial or any extended term of this Agreement, and shall be annually adjusted. Rental payments shall be made by deposit to the Fifth Third Bank account of Management or such other place as Management may from time to time designate. Rent shall be paid through deposit into Management’s account at Fifth Third Bank using the deposit tickets provided. Deposits must be received by 5:00 pm to be credited to the account that day. When the _ falls on a Saturday, Sunday or other bank holiday, Resident agrees to deposit their rent by 5:00 pm on the next business day. When the bank receives your payment and credits it to our account, your rent is considered paid. Resident is responsible to notify Management when additional deposit tickets are needed. Deposit tickets must include the Resident’s name or property address so that their account may be properly credited. 3.DISCOUNT FOR PROMPT PAYMENT: Time is of the essence in this Agreement. If the rent, and any previous balance due, is received and accepted on or before the day of the month (due date as described above) a TWENTY FIVE DOLLAR ($25.00) DISCOUNT will be credited to the rental payment. 4.ADDITIONAL RENT & RETURNED CHECKS: If Management elects to accept rent after the day of the month, Resident agrees to pay $5.00 for each day after the day of the month as additional rent. The additional rent shall continue to accrue at the rate of $5.00 per day until all rents, lost discounts, and any other amounts owing under this Agreement are paid in full. In the event any check given by Resident to Management is returned by the bank unpaid, Resident agrees to pay Management $50.00 as additional rent, forfeit the rental discount for that month, and agrees to pay additional rent of $5.00 per day after the day of the month until Resident’s account is brought current. 5.HOW YOUR MONEY IS APPLIED TOWARD PAYMENT: Monies received are applied first to any lost rental discount; second to any outstanding additional rent; third to any unpaid fees or charges; then fourth to any current rent or rent to become due. This could result in unpaid rent, which would be subject to additional rent as contained herein. This means if you pay your rent late and pay only the amount of your monthly rent, your rent is still unpaid because the money is used to cover lost rental discount and fees first and could result in initiation of the eviction process.
For Example: If your discounted rent is $_________ and is due on the 1st of the month and you don’t pay it in full,
on the 2nd of the month you will owe $____________
on the 3rd of the month you will owe $____________ (you will also receive a 3 –day eviction notice)
You will owe an additional $5.00 for every day the full amount owed remains unpaid.
The Best and CHEAPEST thing for you to do is to PAY YOUR RENT ON-TIME
6.EVICTION: If the rent called for in paragraph 2 hereof has not been paid by the () of the month, then Management shall automatically and immediately have the right to take out a Dispossessory Warrant and have Resident, his/her family and possessions evicted from the Property. 7.SECURITY DEPOSIT: Resident agrees to pay $ as a deposit and provide a valid co-signer (as determined by Management) to indemnify owner against damage to the Property and for Resident’s fulfillment of the conditions of this agreement. Said deposit will be returned to Resident, thirty (30) days after residence is vacated if: a.Lease term (initial 12 months) has been expired or agreement has been terminated by both parties. b.All monies due to Management by Resident have been paid. c.Management is in receipt of copies of paid final bills on all utilities including gas, electric, water, sewer, trash, telephone and cablevision. d.Resident has scheduled and attended an exit interview at the unit with a representative of Management. Keys must be returned in person to a representative of Management during the exit interview. Resident agrees to pay a $50.00 fee if they fail to schedule or attend an exit interview. e.Property is not damaged and is left in its original condition, normal wear and tear excepted. f.Carpets, walls, floors, appliances, bathroom fixtures and other areas of the premises have been cleaned and are ready for the new Resident. Management shall arrange for carpets to be professionally treated for ticks and fleas if detected or if pets were present at Resident’s expense. Carpets MUST be cleaned by Management (rates are at or below market price for professional carpet cleaning). Resident may not rent a carpet cleaner and clean the carpets themselves. g.Trash and other debris (including abandoned furniture, clothes or vehicles) have been removed from the Property. h.Resident agrees to pay to replace or refinish any appliances, fixtures, or surfaces marred by the Resident or their guests. Examples include but are not limited to: bath tub stained with hair dye or nail polish, sinks burned by cigarettes, or cabinet doors marked with ink, paint, crayons, or markers. i.Written notice to vacate has been given to Management at least 30 days prior to vacating. j.Rent, or daily rate of $25/day if applicable, is owed until ALL keys have been returned and ALL trash and debris (including furniture and vehicles) have been removed. k.Resident agrees to pay rent at a daily rate of $25/day for each day required to clean and repair the damage you did to the unit until the unit is in rentable condition.
Example: You tell us you are going to be out by the 30th but then you decide you need three extra days so your friends can help you move over the weekend. After you leave and give us the keys, it takes our cleaning crew three days to clean and repair the doors you damaged and the holes in the wall. You will owe an additional $150 ($25/day X 3 extra days to move out, $25/day X 3 days to clean) which will be deducted from your security deposit or billed directly to you if your deposit does not cover the labor and materials to clean and repair your apartment.
Deposit may be applied by Management to satisfy all or part of Resident’s obligations and such act shall not prevent Management from claiming the damages in excess of the deposit.
Resident may not apply the deposit to any of the rent payment.
It is our sincere desire to refund your entire deposit amount because that would mean you have returned the unit in the same condition you received it and have fulfilled all the terms of this Agreement.
*The cleaning checklist included in your tenant folder shows you what we expect to be cleaned after move-out in order to receive your full deposit refund.
8.EARLY RELEASE AND/OR RETURN OF PROPERTY: Resident may be released from the obligation to pay the rents contained herein, as of the last day of a rental month, before the expiration of the initial term or any extensions by: a.Resident provides Management with written notification 30 days prior to move-out. b.Paying all monies due through date of release (this means you pay all rent through the day you move out). c.Returning Premises in a clean, undamaged ready-to-rent condition (see paragraph 7 above) d.Rent is owed until ALL keys have been returned to Management and all trash and debris (including vehicles) have been removed from the premises. e.If you have not completed the initial 12 months term of this lease, you agree to pay an amount equal to one month’s discounted rent as an Early Release Option. f.If you have completed the initial term and your lease has converted to a month-to-month basis and you fail to give written notice 30 days prior to move-out, you agree to pay an amount equal to one month’s discounted rent as a Non-Thirty-Day Notice Option to Management.

In no instance will more than two (2) pets be allowed. Authorized pets must be listed below. By listing, Resident agrees to be fully liable for damages and injuries to property and/or people, which might be caused by pets. Resident agrees that if said pets should at any time become annoying, bothersome, or in any way a nuisance to neighbors (this includes the presence of pet waste), Resident will, upon notice of Management, immediately remove said pets from the Property. You must clean up after your pet immediately and dispose of the waste responsibly. Any unauthorized pets found on the Property shall be removed by Resident and above stated pet fees and pet rent, retroactively to the date of this Agreement, shall be paid immediately to Management. If pet charges or rent are owed, the next money received by Management shall be applied first toward pet charges and pet rent, then toward rent owed.

Example: Your lease began 10 months ago and you decide to get a cat or dog or pet sit for one day and not tell us about it. We discover the pet (we always do sooner or later), you immediately owe us $50 Non-refundable pet charge and $250 pet rent ($25/month pet rent X 10 months). The next money we receive from you will be applied first toward the $300 ($50 + $250) you now owe which may result in unpaid rent and additional late charges. Example: Your lease began 10 months ago and you decide to get a dog or cat. You notify us and we give written permission. You owe $50 Non-refundable pet charge and $25 pet rent each month beginning that month.
