FAQ: When should the tenant get a copy of the lease?

When should the tenant get a copy of the lease?  

It is a good idea to get a copy of the lease and any house rules before signing so you will have a chance to review them. At a minimum, a tenant should be given a copy of the lease and any rules referred to in the lease after it has been signed. Because the lease spells out the responsibilities of the tenant and landlord, it is important for both parties to have a copy of the lease to answer any questions. Keep your lease in a safe place.
