Hello, it`s Paul Kankowski with House Match Property Management. I`m in the Temecula- San Diego area of Southern California. Today I`m going to talk about the coach (California Association of Realtors) Lease and what you want in your lease. If you use the California Association of Realtors rental agreement, you must first work with a licensed real estate agent in the State of California. You cannot use car rental if you are not a licensed real estate agent. I propose that all those who rent a property use the rental contract because or something that will be equivalent to it. Car Lease is checked by lawyers and it`s a good lease. At House Match, we do not use the CAR (California Association of Realtors) Lease we have our own rental contract. Our lease is 22 pages long, so our lease is a little more comprehensive, since we have been doing this for a long time and we have very specific things that we want to discuss in our leasing. So I`ll talk about some of the things I would suggest if you created your own lease, make sure those items are in. The CAR leasing contract will have all the basic things you need, but some specific things don`t. The first is that the lease must indicate the duration of the duration if the dates are. If you have a lease of several years, it has other data that the price goes up or down.
I have seen a lot of very bad rental contracts where the data is very confusing. It says year one, it goes up to 50 dollars, year two goes up to 100 dollars, and they don`t set an appointment. You put a year two. It is not a good thing if you are dealing with a trial. You want a January 1, 2021, that`s the price, January 1, 2022, it`s the price. Clarify your rental agreement, very clearly and easily readable so as not to confuse the customer. You don`t want to get confused, and you don`t want to confuse the judge if you ever have to stand in front of you and defend your lease. Make sure your rental price is very clear, if you have an additional fee, then you must have those in the rental agreement and make sure that the tenants know about them before the lease starts. I give the rent and we have it very clearly in our lease, so when they sign their lease, they know it.
