Use the table below to check the amount of notice you need to give in your country and check the relevant law: a lease must explicitly state the monthly amount of rent and indicate the consequences if the rent is delayed. If a tenant causes problems or doesn`t pay the rent, the landlord can kick them out of the property with an eviction notice. A rental contract is a legal document defining the prescribed conditions for the rental of the leased property to be respected between the contracting authority and the tenant. Although the relationship between the client and the tenant is cordial most of the time, it is good to have a written lease when the relationship becomes furious or marred by complaints and misunderstandings. “Premises” are simply the exact address and type of property that is rented, such as an apartment, house or condo.
