When you need to transfer or convey property quickly but do not make any guarantees or warrants regarding the property, you can use the quitclaim deed to convey property ownership to tenants in common. A family may use this when transferring property between relatives or it may be used to add or remove a spouse from a deed.
An Amendment of Lease is a form used to make changes to an existing lease if both the tenant and landlord agree on the terms. Either the tenant or the landlord can propose changes to the original terms, and the form provides a written record of what changes are desired and agreed to by you and the other party.
A memorandum of lease is a document outlining what leases are in force when a building changes ownership. Information listed may include the start and ends dates for the lease, names and addresses of tenants, easements and lease options. If you are considering purchasing a property, this document shows you exactly what kinds of leases are attached to it.
As a landlord, you know that tenants sometimes breach lease agreements. In many cases, the breach isn't so severe that you wish to terminate the lease, but you'd still like the breach to be remedied. This Request for Tenant to Remedy Breach form allows you to request that the tenant fix the violation before further action is taken.
In a residential tenancy, a landlord must maintain the premises so that they are fit for a human being to live there. When a landlord fails to meet this obligation, a tenant may be able to cancel the lease agreement. A Notice to Landlord to Make Repairs form may help you inform the landlord of the need for essential repairs.
A warranty deed guarantees that your property is free from unstated encumbrances in addition to the fact that you have a title to and a right to sell the property. If a property title is shared, the property itself is usually shared between you and another person, with survivorship rights adhering to the one who is living.
A notice to perform covenant or quit, also called a three-day notice, serves to notify a tenant either to correct their violation of the lease agreement or move out of your property. This document, which must be in writing and clearly lay out the violation among other items, is often the first step in initiating eviction proceedings.
If you and your tenant want to extend the terms of the original lease agreement you both signed, a residential lease extension agreement is a simple way to accomplish this. This document states the length of time for extending the original lease terms and specifies any rent increases. It must then be notarized.
