So, you know what apartment you are renting for in Miami , you have an oral agreement with its owner, but this is not enough. Rental Property in Miami, as well as throughout the world, is documented, through a special contract. In America, it is also called a contract. The contract has a standard form, but on its last pages you can find text in small print. It contains very important points. Do not be lazy to read them, study, “try on” for yourself, compare with American legislation.
At the time of signing the contract, you will also need a certificate confirming your financial viability – international bank reference.
Renting an apartment in Miami through the signing of a lease is a common practice. When compiling this document, remember that it should contain the following information:
– the name, surname and address of the registration of the landlord and tenant;
– the cost of rent and the term of its payment;
– amount of security (security deposit);
– time of the contract;
– description of the apartment in Miami , which is leased (and also the property is transferred);
– whose duties – the landlord or tenant – include the payment of utilities;
– the possibility of extending the lease term;
– the possibility of sublease.
Miroslav Mutsey warns that it is important to state in the document the amount of rent and the annual percentage of its growth.

Do not forget to write on the check that confirms the deposit, write that the cash deposit must be returned – deposit refundable for apartment. In the contract list, also, that your duties do not include the payment of property tax, as well as insurance premiums for the building. In addition, in the contract, leave a note stating that the deposit fee is not stored with rental payment. It would be nice to immediately indicate the bank account number so that it can later be withdrawn, and even with interest.
Thesis number 9
Remember, if you initially signed a contract in which you are given an apartment rental in Miami for 1 year, and after this time you plan to continue living in the same apartment, the landlord has every right to increase the rent by at least four percent. If the contract for rental housing in Miami for 2 years was drawn up, in this case, the amount of the fee could rise to 6 percent. Renting an apartment in Miami for 3 years is a reason for the landlord, at the end of the old contract, to draw up a new document with an increase in the amount of the rental rate by 10 percent! Consider these points!
