In order to safeguard the rights of both tenants/licensee and landlords/licensor, you must ensure that you have a written rent agreement. While finalising this agreement, it is very important to read all the terms mentioned in it.
These terms not only decide your rent amount and security deposit but also covers many other important aspects such as maintenance of the house/property you are leasing, payment of relevant bills, notice period of leaving, etc.
