It is important to note that whenever you sign a rental agreement as a tenant, you should always carry out a thorough joint inspection of the real estate premises in the owner`s gifts and note each object and any equipment provided by the lessor with its condition. Each lease agreement must be accompanied by a joint inspection report to ensure that there will be no problems or claims afterwards. If you rent a property but don`t use a lease, you could lose rental money, be held responsible for any illegal activity on the ground, receive penalties for unpaid incidentals, or spend a lot of money to repair property damage and attorney`s fees. If you are renting a house, land or commercial building, you must have a lease. In this case, the tenant becomes a sub-country, as he becomes both owner and tenant.
