Where a written lease is used, the landlord must give the tenant(s) an unsigned copy of the lease before asking them to sign.
Tenants should always read the lease thoroughly before signing and ask questions if they don’t understand any part of it.
The lease outlines:
the amount of rent and how it is to be paid
the length and type of tenancy
the amount of bond required
other conditions and rules
any special terms agreed by the parties
