My landlord included this item in the additional terms for a lease they want me to sign:
- Tenants agree to pay all reasonable costs, Lawyer’s fees and expenses made or incurred by Landlord enforcing this agreement.
This is a major red flag for me since this would seem to imply that if my landlord wants to take me to court for anything (reasonable or not) I'd have to pay for their lawyer as well as my own lawyer. If they wanted to hire an expensive lawyer and drag it out they could easily bankrupt me.
Is this even legal? It feels like signing away your rights which I'm pretty sure you're not allowed to do.
