How to Prepare a Rent Perfect Lease Agreement

 *Before you can start the lease process you must do the following:

1. Add the property address to your account and fill in the required property information for the lease.

2. The tenant must complete the online application and the property address must be assigned to the tenant.

Step 1: Prepare the lease for the tenant(s)

 

 Click "Prepare Lease" on the home screen of your account.

 

 Find the desired tenant's name and click the button that says "Prepare Lease" found under their name. You will have the chance to add additional signers and occupants on the next step.

The property information you previously created will automatically fill in most of the information required for the lease. To edit any of the saved property information simply click the edit pencil icon next to the field and enter the changes. 

Next, fill in the remaining required information for the lease including lease dates, rent amount, deposit amount, and any additional lessees (who will sign), or authorized occupants if appicable. When you are finished, check the "I agree" box at the bottom of the page and then click “Save and Preview.” You must click "Save" to generate a preview copy of your lease.

 

 

 

Step 2: Preview the Lease and edit if needed.

Once you click "Save & Preview" a preview copy of the lease will open in a new tab. (If the lease does not open in a new tab please try disabling your browser's popup blocker, and click "Save and Preview" again.) The lease will have a “PREVIEW COPY” watermark until you send a lease signing notification to the tenant(s). 

 

If needed you can make additional changes to the lease information. If changes are made you must check "I agree" at the bottom and SAVE again.

 

 

If you need to continue the lease at a later time you can do so. Before you log out of your account remember to save any recent changes. To continue the process log back into your account, click "Prepare Lease" on the home screen and then click "edit" underneath the tenants name. 

 

 

Step 3: Send a lease signing notification to the tenant(s).

 

When you have finished making any necessary edits to the lease next will send the lease signing notification. Each tenant that is a signer must log into their Rent Perfect account to view and sign the lease agreement. The lease is a "live" document and will up update with signatures automatically in both landlord and tenant accounts.

 

You must give confirmation to send a lease signing notification.


You will receive an email notification once a tenant signs the lease. You can also click "view details" underneath the tenant's name to check the status.

 

 

 Step 4: The Landlord signs the least.

Once all tenants have signed finally the landlord will sign the lease. To sign the lease click the button that says "Landlord Signature" underneath the tenants name. 

 

 

 

Type your name in the signature field to digitally sign the lease.

 

Click “Signed Lease”  to view, print or save a final copy of the lease. Rent Perfect will automatically store a signed copy of the lease in both the landlord and tenant accounts. You can access a copy at anytime on your smartphone or computer. 

 

Once a lease is signed by all parties the lease cannot be changed. In order to terminate the lease early all parties must agree to sign a lease termination agreement in their account. 

 

You will have the option to renew the lease within 30 days of the lease end date. If you would like to renew sooner you can manage the renewal options in the property settings or contact customer service for assistance.
