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.

It is bordered to the west by the Gulf of Mexico, to the north by Alabama and Georgia and to the east by the Atlantic Ocean. Florida is the 22nd most extensive, the 4th most populous, and the 8th most densely populated of the 50 United States. The state capital is Tallahassee, its largest city is Jacksonville, and the South Florida metropolitan area is the largest metropolitan area in the southeastern U.S.
Much of Florida is situated on a peninsula between the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Straits of Florida. Its geography is marked by a coastline, by the omnipresence of water and the threat of hurricanes. Florida has the longest coastline in the contiguous United States, encompassing approximately 1,350 miles (2,170 km), and is the only state to border both the Gulf of Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. Much of the state is at or near sea level and its terrain is characterized by sedimentary soils. The climate varies from subtropical in the north to tropical in the south. Its symbolic animals like the American alligator, Florida panther and the manatee, can be found in the Everglades, one of the most famous national parks in the world.
