that you consult with an attorney before you enter into any binding agreement such as a lease.

A lease is a binding contract between tenant and landlord that lists the obligations of both parties. The lease should be a written document, signed by both the landlord and the tenant. Oral agreements tend to result in misunderstandings and disagreements about their terms. Be sure to read all of the terms of the lease before signing.
