Lease Agreement in Large Print - The Landlord Protection Agency

State Specific Lease Inserts


The Must-Have Lease Agreement form... The large print version makes it very easy for you to review the clauses of your lease. LPA Lease Large Print at Essential Forms page

Landlords love The LPA Lease because it represents many years of trial and error learning that come from very painful and expensive lessons from experiences with tenants. It has successfully saved us over and over again from some serious nightmares, and from losing a lot of money!

The LPA Lease* is easy to read and understand. It has evolved over the years being highly praised by attorneys representing landlords and tenants. Especially landlords.

It does its job to discourage problem renters from signing on as our tenants. If the LPA Application doesn't discourage the Deadbeat, the LPA Lease will. Let them disqualify themselves before they become your headache!

We find that if a prospect passes our screening requirements, he'll agree to our lease. Why not? The lease outlines in detail what is expected of an excellent tenant. We only want excellent tenants and they are more than happy to agree to our lease. They will treat the property with pride and respect, and that makes being a landlord a great job.

The LPA Lease is specially written to cater to residential houses and apartments. Because it is already in word processor format for your convenience, you can easily add, delete or change items in the document to customize the lease to your exact needs.

If possible, this lease should be read and explained to the tenant in person. We find it to be more effective that way. After all, it is an instruction manual for how to be your tenant in your rental property.

Before turning over a valuable asset with a mere 1 or 2 month security deposit, make sure the tenants understand and agree to all your terms. You'd be surprised at how many people are so eager to just sign the lease without bothering to read it. You can get a real idea of what these people will be like as tenants by how they respond to the terms in your lease.

For example:

  • What does it tell you if the prospect has a major problem with your late fee policy? That's right, he expects to pay rent late.

  • How about if the prospect argues about being responsible for minor repairs?

  • Or the cleaning charge?

  • Or if he has a problem with a penalty for unauthorized occupants?

  • What if he has a real problem with the default clause, which outlines your rights to evict for nonpayment?

  • Did you know about the Daily Rental clause in which the tenant agrees that you may, in case of a default, take on the same rights of a hotel, enabling you to have them removed and arrested for theft of services and/or trespassing?

You can really learn a lot about a tenant during the lease signing.

Remember, our lease is not meant to be used as a weapon, it is a Landlord Protection tool to defend yourself and your property from unscrupulous tenants and difficult situations. Although the LPA lease is a very powerful tool, it's even more powerful if you use it effectively.
