    Rental agreements vary from an oral agreement to pay rent for a place to live indeterminately, up to multiple pages of "terms and conditions", including rules and obligations upon the tenants.

    For the most part, written leases (often for a year or more) are to the advantage of the tenants because they may keep the landlord from arbitrarily raising the rent or throwing out tenants. The tenant, of course, may vacate at any time (it's not a prison sentence), knowing that some landlords may attempt to collect "damages" arising from a tenant's early termination.

    If the landlord wants to place restrictions upon the tenants, beyond what is already in the pertinent laws, the "lease" is typically where they must do it. Things like prohibiting pets or sublets or tenants parking in the driveway, or perhaps late-payment penalties, are often laid out in the lease.

    Just remember: it's a contract WITH a property right. If the tenant doesn't like the terms, they may either attempt to negotiate or walk away and try to find a more reasonable landlord.

    It is extremely important! It spells out all the terms of the agreement. It protects both landlord & tenant. Unless you only plan on renting for a short time frame, you should never rent without a signed agreement.

    Spells out the terms of the rental. Also assures, to a degree, that the renter will be there and rental will be available for the term of the agreements and that the rental price won't change until the agreement is up.

    A rental agreement is made while renting a property and it contains terms and conditions to be followed. It protects the interests of both the landlord and tenant.

    It includes consideration, rights and obligations of both parties, and also the rental terms are established in the agreement. In most part of India such an agreement last only 11 months to protect against rental control laws. Agreements with a longer term need to be registered. A rent agreement should include the cost of the rent, amount of security deposit, date of depositing the rent, mode of payment, and other conditions of using the premises. In case of violation of the rental agreement, the aggrieved party can apply for relief in the civil court.

    In India each states has its own rent control Act which governs the rental agreements in India. These state legislations settles disputes between the landlords and the tenants in their respective states.

    Rental agreements can also be renewed when expired.
