A residential lease rental agreement is a contract between a tenant and landlord, which outlines the rules, regulations and terms of the living arrangement. The tenant should abide all of the language contained within the agreement.
A rental lease agreement will state how much rent the tenant should pay to the landlord. Rent is usually due on the first of the month. Landlords will sometimes give tenants a grace period of 4 or 5 days to pay rent without being assessed a fee.
The lease agreement will designate the time frame for the lease. A lease is usually in effect for one year, but that can vary. The beginning date and ending date is clearly spelled out in a lease agreement.
The landlord will make known, within the confines of the agreement, the requirements for the security deposit. A security deposit is usually required in case the property is damaged. If a tenant leaves the premises before the end of the lease agreement, the security is forfeited, unless an another arrangement can be worked out between the tenant and landlord.
Alaska is the largest state in the United States by area. It is situated in the northwest extremity of the North American continent, with Canada to the east, the Arctic Ocean to the north, and the Pacific Ocean to the west and south, with Russia further west across the Bering Strait. Approximately half of Alaska’s 710,231 residents (as per the 2010 United States Census) live within the Anchorage metropolitan area. Alaska is the least densely populated state of the U.S.
Alaska was purchased from Russia on March 30, 1867, for $7.2 million ($113 million in today’s dollars) at approximately two cents per acre ($4.74/km²). The land went through several administrative changes before becoming an organized (or incorporated) territory on May 11, 1912, and the 49th state of the U.S. on January 3, 1959.
