The Premises may only be used strictly for residential
purposes and may only be occupied by Tenant and Tenant’s
spouse and children.
2. Inability to Give Possession
The failure of Landlord to give Tenant possession of the
Premises on the Commencement Date shall not create liability
for Landlord. In the event that possession of the Premises is not
delivered on the Commencement Date, Monthly Rent hereunder
shall begin on the date that possession of the Premises is
delivered to Tenant and shall be prorated for that portion of the
month in which possession is delivered. In such event, the
Termination Date shall not change.

each month of the Lease. Monthly Rent shall be paid in advance
with no notice being required from Landlord. Tenant shall not
deduct any sums from the Monthly Rent unless Landlord
consents thereto in writing.
Upon signing this Lease, Tenant shall pay Landlord the first
Monthly Rent due and the Security Deposit. The entire amount
of rent due for the Lease Term is due upon signing this Lease;
however, Landlord consents to the Tenant paying same in
monthly installments provided there exists no defaults by
Tenant under the terms of this Lease.
B. Additional Rent may include, but is not limited to any
additional insurance premiums and/or expenses paid by
Landlord which are chargeable to Tenant as stated hereinafter.
Additional Rent is due and payable with the Monthly Rent for
the next month after Tenant receives notice from Landlord that

Tenant acknowledges that Tenant is accepting the Premises in
its “as is” condition. Tenant further acknowledges that Tenant
has thoroughly inspected the Premises and has found the

if any, are in good operating condition. Tenant further states
that Tenant knows how to operate the appliances and shall do so
in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.

The Security Deposit is due upon the Tenant signing this
Lease. The Security Deposit shall not be used for the payment
of Monthly Rent unless agreed to, in writing, by Landlord and
Tenant. Within ten (10) days after Tenant surrenders possession
of the Premises at the expiration of the Lease Term, Landlord
shall return the Security Deposit, less any cost of repairs as
authorized by this Lease, to Tenant at an address Tenant
provides. If the Premises is sold, Landlord will transfer the

hereby releases Landlord from any liability with respect to the

furnishings and other personal property included under this
