What is a short-term lease?

AHI Corporate Housing specializes in short-term residential leases, therefore that is the only type of lease we will discuss here.

First, let’s begin with what is a lease? A lease is a legally binding contract between a landlord and renter. It states in detail what the landlord will provide the tenant as well as, what is expected from the tenant. Both parties sign the lease and abide by its terms.

Tenant moves in. Landlord rejoices. They live happily ever after. The end.

Just kidding.

A lease isn’t terribly complicated (at least it doesn’t have to be), but there is a bit more detail than the above definition. Plus, it’s a legal document and I don’t know about you, but I like to know EXACTLY what I’m signing when I sign it. Here goes.

Other terms for a lease can be:

  • Lease Agreement
  • Apartment Lease
  • Rental Agreement
  • Rental Lease Agreement
  • Rental Contract

Residential Lease Agreement is a lease agreement that is specific to residential rental properties and is used to outline the terms and conditions of a tenancy, including the rights and obligations of the landlord and tenant. It can be used for various types of residential properties, including apartments, houses, condos, duplexes, townhouses, and more. – lawdepot.com.

Most apartment complexes and property managers prefer tenants to sign a year lease, minimum. Meaning that you are locked into those terms and that unit for exactly one year. But what if you only need temporary housing for 6 months?

A short-term lease generally refers to a lease with a duration of less than six months. Often, they are based on a month-to-month rental agreement, which may or may not be renewed at the end of each month. Although monthly agreements are the most common, they may be weekly, or even less depending on what type of rental property you are interested in . –homeguides.com.

AHI Corporate Housing offers short-term leases on a month-to-month basis. You shouldn’t be tied to a year lease when your job assignment might only be 25 days, or you are in between homes for only three weeks. You determine the length of your stay and if that changes, that’s ok! AHI Corporate Housing works with you and YOUR time frame.

Wouldn’t you be more comfortable in a furnished apartment that feels like home during that time? My answer is yes but a cramped hotel room sounds cool too….I guess.
