All of these items are addressed in an individual lease. Every company/property owner does not use the same lease. Some homes will include pool & lawn, others don't. Some include well service, others don't.

Once you find the right place ask for a copy of the lease and read it carefully to understand your responsibilities and the landlord's. State statute does require the landlord provide certain things; anything outside that list is preference.
