It is a good idea for both the landlord and tenant to check the rules before signing the agreement. 17 Under that Act and the regulations, a landlord may require a tenant to pay a bond as a condition of entering into a lease or the term of a lease. (5) The right of a lessor to withhold all or part of a bond or pet bond in accordance with subsection (4) (a) does not exist where the tenant`s liability is related to damages and the lessor`s right to claim damages in exchange for a bond or pet bond does not exist under section 24, paragraph 2,, [Lessor non-compliance with the conditions of commencement of lease] or 36 para. 2 has died [owner] has not fulfilled the requirements of the report on the end of the contract. (a) give the landlord a written period of at least 10 days to terminate the tenancy on a date before the effective date of the lessor`s termination, and a surety – often referred to as a “surety” – is the money that a lessor enters into at the beginning of a lease and holds until the end of the lease. Under Article 19(1) of the RTA, the maximum amount a lessor may charge for a deposit is half of the monthly rent. . . .
