With the explosive growth in the Treasure Valley and the rising cost of rent, it can be incredibly tough to find a place to live.

As rents shoot up more and more people are financially forced to move, which means more people are signing new lease agreements.

The nonprofit Jesse Tree has been looking at some of those agreements and finding questionable, sometimes even illegal, clauses that adversely affect the renter.
