Are you currently looking to rent a home or apartment, or living somewhere without a written lease? Although oral leases are legally binding in West Virginia and offer the advantage of flexibility, you may want to consider a written lease.

A lease can be for any period of time, and offers you protection from unexpected rent increases. It also spells out your and the landlord's responsibilities concerning repairs, subleases, insurance, security deposits and related issues. Leases are generally prepared by the landlord, but a tenant may also prepare one, and a tenant is certainly allowed to negotiate the terms contained in any lease. A written lease defines the rules of the game before you start to play -- be sure to carefully read its terms and don't sign until you understand all the clauses.
