I'M A TENANT

A tenant is person who has signed a rental agreement or lease (or has an oral rental agreement) with a landlord to rent a property, such as a house, flat, room or apartment. The tenant and landlord maintain a legal relationship that creates various responsibilities for both parties. If the landlord has accepted the person’s presence in the rental property or has accepted rent from the person, that person can gain the status of a tenant without signing a lease or a rental agreement.
