The lease in my lease/options course is fairly simple for a reason: I really don’t care what the tenant does, so long as he pays rent on time and maintains the property. For a '“regular” tenant, I do use a stricter lease.
Honestly, in all my years of practicing law and being a landlord, my experience has been that lease clauses don’t mean all that much . . . either the tenant will comply, or he won’t REGARDLESS of what the lease says. And, most of us are too busy to get into a “joust” with a tenant over anything OTHER than rent, damage to the property or bothering the neighbors.
