Understading the law
If you want to progress you have to know this first!
When you are going to enter into a lease contract, the need to know real estate laws arises when you are to decide and document the conditions which will terminate the contract, transfer of property provisions and the use of property. Having known what you can do and what you need not to do to avoid lawsuits or unfair claims on your property will help you as long as you are involved in the agreement.
The third and last occasion is when you are entering a landlord-tenant agreement. You should well consider the landlord/tenant laws and should well bargain your rights. As a tenant, you can, and should, check fro the present condition of the residence, the number of tenants as written in the agreement and the terms and conditions of increasing the rent. As a landlord, you should make it clear to the tenant that what are the circumstances in which you have the right to terminate the contract, the number of residents and the time period for which the agreement is valid.
