The TAR leasing contract is copyrighted and the only people authorized to use it are THE MEMBERS of the TAR. I`m checking the tenants for my first apartment to rent. I asked my realtor if he had a copy of a rental agreement that I could refer to or use, and he sent me a copy of the 2001 TAR form. From what I have read, only real estate agents have the right to use this lease. I am not a real estate agent, but if my agent supports me in the rental process, can I use this lease? Does my agent have to “co-signed” the lease in some way to make it valid, since I am not a real estate agent? Contact the Texas Apartment Association as if you were a member in your local chapter, it includes TAA membership and they offer access to Blue Moon Forms that allows you to use the TAR-2001 online form, and then some. Recommend sammonn especially if you don`t use a property management company. Who pays the electricity bill? Paragraph 11 of the residential rent (TAR 2001) covers the … TAR 2001 Residential Lease is designed for the rental of 1-4 detached homes, including condos, townhouses or terrace houses. Not to be used for complex transactions or to create a “lease purchase.” The corresponding additives can be attached. I have just signed up for the TAA and the rental contracts seem to be formulated for the apartments.
Do I miss something or do they also have versions for detached houses? @Fred Heller thanks for this information. My realtor has given me the rental contract and is willing to support it, if I ask, it looks like I`m clear. To my knowledge, you can thwart section 33-g, anything that is written above or from a contract or lease or withdrawn from a contract or lease would have priority as long as you delete this section and you have the signature/intials on the lease. By removing this single section, the lease can be fulfilled without a member of REALTOR`s board of directors. Check this out with a property or atty manager, but this has been communicated to me by several people. If you look at the leases, I recommend taa on TAR leasing. As an owner, TAA leases must protect the landlord and clearly express the tenant`s obligations. If your realtor gives you the rental contract as an agent, then you should be fine. But remember that if you are not trained in tenant/owner regulation, you could make a mistake on the rental agreement that could come back and bite them later. I am a property manager, and I guarantee that no lawyer will tell you to remove sections of TAR leasing and use it as yours.
At the head of TAR leasing, it is very clear that only members of the Texas Trues Association have the right to use it. Under this is copyright. Do unauthorized persons use TAR leasing? All the time. Are they going to get caught? Probably not. Is it legal and/or ethical? No way. And when I see one, I`ll point out that you`re TAR a. I spend a lot of money to be an ART member, and I don`t want to see someone who uses a TAR advantage improperly.@Eric Lee I`m banging my hat on to you because I`m trying to do what`s right. Your real estate agent has given you the rental contract and he/she has the right to use it. If your realtor granted you the lease as an agent, I wouldn`t worry too much about it. If you are concerned, there are sites that sell specific rental forms.
