It is important to make sure that the document expresses your needs. If you are the renter, you’ll want to keep an eye out for late fees and other clauses that can cost you more money than the first rental amount. If you are the owner of the property, make sure the renters know about and understands everything in the agreement before you rent to them.
Both parties will want to make sure their interests are protected. If you are an owner, you need to protect yourself against liability, make sure you consider potential damage or loss of value of the equipment, as well as many other factors. If you are the renter, you’ll want to know what you need to do if you need extra time or how and when to return the equipment so you don’t incur a late fee.
Verbal agreements are notoriously difficult to enforce, not to mention people will often forget, or remember differently. The number of disputes that have come from two people remembering an event differently is many. All you have to do to prevent this from happening is make sure you have a proper written agreement – one that everyone can understand.
Renting equipment for fun or work is a simple, cost-effective way of using something you don’t own. It can also be a great way to start a business. Either way you need to make sure the terms of any agreement are clear and understandable.
