Before you move into a house or apartment, you will usually sign a lease or rental agreement with the landlord. It is usually between 1-10 pages in length. Most people do not read the small print details, as they may feel embarrassed to read it in front of the landlord, or his/her agent. All of the details in your lease agreement are important and explain your rights and expectations. So, be sure to clarify any questions you may have about the lease.
