Why a Lease Renewal Agreement is so important

If the current tenant is taking good care of the property and paying the rent on time, then keeping them as renters may be the right choice. By renewing the lease, a landlord can avoid the cost of marketing and screening and will not lose rental income due to the home being vacant.

After you have run a lease renewal screening on your tenant and you have decided to keep them on as an occupant, the next step is to create a lease renewal. A lease renewal letter is generally sent to a tenant 90 days before the expiration date of the current lease.
