I'm about to sign a rental lease that has a clause about "additional rent". It seems to be common in certain boilerplates, but I'm hesitant signing this. The exact clause is: "Additional Rent may include, but is not limited to any additional insurance premiums and/or expenses paid by Landlord which are chargeable to Tenant as stated hereinafter..." Also here: https://goo.gl/TfhA7r — does that mean they can charge us taxes/insurance/maintenance etc? Is this normal? They're also not willing to agree to add all promised appliances like dishwasher, washer, dryer, but that's another topic. Thanks
Yes, that term is standard but you need to have a qualified landlord/tenant lawyer review the lease and advise you.
This is not an unusual clause. This is part of a boilerplate lease form.
