lessor from time to time;

of other persons on the property or in neighboring property. This duty to refrain from
hazardous activity includes, but is not necessarily limited to, the duty to refrain from

Residential Landlord-Tenant Act of 1973 as amended;

n. Renter's Insurance. The lessee shall procure and keep in force a policy of
renter's insurance insuring the lessee, and the lessor as an additional insured, against
loss from damage to lessee's property and the property of lessee's family, guests, and
invitees, including but not limited to loss from fire, theft, burglary, mysterious
disappearance, smoke, firefighting measures, or electrical damage, damage from water
leaking or escaping from pipes, drainage systems, roofs, or gutters, damage from water by

liability for personal injury to the lessee, lessee's family, and lessee's guests and
invitees where such personal injury is attributable to the acts, neglects, errors, or
omissions of lessee. Lessee shall furnish to lessor from time to time proof of such
insurance upon lessor's request.
o. Care of yard and building. If the property is a single family detached
residence, or a duplex in which the lessee has exclusive use of a yard, the lessee shall
maintain the yard and grounds, including removal of snow and ice from sidewalks and
driveways, removal of debris, watering, weed control, pest control, clipping, mowing, and
pruning of trees, grass, plants, and shrubs so as to keep the yard in an attractive and
healthy condition. Lessee shall furnish the tools, hoses, mowers, equipment, and
supplies for this purpose. Lessee shall keep the sidewalks free of obstructions and
hazards. Lessee shall keep the roof clean and the gutters and downspouts clear. Lessee

statutes, regulations, or ordinances.
r. Report problems
. Lessee shall notify lessor of all damages and defects known
to or discovered by lessee, whether occurring before or during the lessee's tenancy.
Such notification by lessee does not necessarily obligate the lessor to repair the damage
or defect; the notification is for the lessor's information only. Lessor's obligation
to repair is as stated in the Washington Residential Landlord-Tenant Act of 1973, as
amended, and nothing in this agreement shall be construed to enlarge the lessor's duty of
repair or maintenance.

aquarium on or in the property (unless stored only, completely drained)
8. No changing locks
. Unless the lessee has first obtained the lessor's written
