Rules that You and the Landlord Agree to in the Lease or Tenancy Agreement
The lease or tenancy agreement is a contract between you and the landlord. The items that you and the landlord agree to in the contract are called the terms of the contract. As stated above, some terms from Residential Tenancies Act have to be part of the agreement whether or not you even talk about them.
However, the law does not cover all the possible items that you and your landlord might want to agree upon in a tenancy agreement. There are items that are not covered by the Residential Tenancies Act.
Once the contract is completed both you and the landlord are legally bound by the contract. This means that if one of you breaks a rule that is set out in the contract, there is a risk that the other will take some action to end the contract or to recover compensation.
