If the house is subject to covenants, conditions and restrictions (CC-Rs), HOA agreements or other similar instruments, copies of these documents must be given to the tenant before the signing of the tenancy agreement. If the house was built before 1978, the Lead-Based Paint Disclosure and Pamphlet (available at www.epa.gov) should be given to the tenant before the parties sign the lease. If the house was built in 1978 or later, the second paragraph of Section 6 may be removed from the lease. Enter the amount of the deposit in the first drafts. Often this amount is equal to one month`s rent, but the parties can decide to agree on any amount. In the second raw coin, enter the part (if it exists) of the deposit that is not refunded at the end of the life. For example, the landlord might have a policy to have the carpets professionally cleaned according to each tenant, and in this case, the landlord could indicate that $200 of the deposit will not be refunded. Of course, the lessor has the right to use the entire deposit, if necessary, against unpaid rent or the cost of repairing damage to the premises by the tenant, as explained in more detail in this section of the contract.
