Make sure your rental price is very clear, if you have an additional fee, then you must have those in the rental agreement and make sure that the tenants know about them before the lease starts. I give the rent and we have it very clearly in our lease, so when they sign their lease, they know it. It`s $2,000 for the first month, and the prorated rent is $400. Be clear, there is no confusion when next month arrives. We always have a whole month to pay the first month and the second month of rental is always pro-rental. There is no additional time prescribed by the state, the rent is due on the date stipulated in the tenancy agreement. Meganes Act (No. 2079.10 (a)) – New tenants must be informed (in writing in the contents of the rental agreement) that the California Department of Justice runs a website that shares reports on registered sex offenders.

Both parts of the transaction must approve the contract for the document to be effective. At House Match, we do not use the CAR (California Association of Realtors) Lease we have our own rental contract. Our lease is 22 pages long, so our lease is a little more comprehensive, since we have been doing this for a long time and we have very specific things that we want to discuss in our leasing. So I`ll talk about some of the things I would suggest if you created your own lease, make sure those items are in. The CAR leasing contract will have all the basic things you need, but some specific things don`t.
