The lease deposit has to be paid before the rental agreement can be signed.
The agreement is made in writing between the selected tenant and it is signed by both the represantative of the lessor as well as the tenant. If the tenants are a married couple/couple or are room mates, the agreement is signed by all parties. The care takers of a minor will sign the agreement.
The agreement is made either for the time being or for a fixed-period of time according to the tenant selection procedure.
