The rental contract must be made following the legal rules to avoid legal problems in the future while making the rental contract for foreigners. A rental contract is a written document that formalizes the landlords leaving his home for the tenants use and the tenants use of the house by paying the rent. The rental contract is a security measure against problems that may arise between the tenant and the immovable property owner.

If a deposit is paid while moving into the house, the amount of the deposit, the reason for which it was paid, and in which cases it should be returned should be remarked.
