Answer: It is always a good idea to read through your lease to see what terms were agreed to. It is important that both parties to an agreement abide by the terms. If you believe that your landlord is requiring you to do something that was not in the lease agreement, you may want to consult with an attorney for more information regarding your specific circumstances.
