A house rental lease is a legal document which contains the terms and conditions to be followed by the lessor and the lessee during the duration of the house rental lease. These terms are necessary so that there is no confusion or conflict regarding the rules and regulations to be followed by either party. The most important points to be included in a house rental lease are the names and addresses of the tenant and the landlord, description and address of the house to be leased, the lease term, the rent, number of people staying in the house, deposit amount, termination conditions, notice period and so on.
