A standard California residential lease agreement is a fixed-term contract (start and end date) between a landlord and tenant for the renting of property. The process usually begins with the tenant viewing the property and completing a rental application (which may require a fee). Afterward, the landlord will decide to approve or reject the tenant. If approved, the tenant will pay a security deposit and 1st month’s rent at the time of lease signing.
