Residential Rental Lease Agreement Form Information:

What is a Residential Rental Lease Agreement?

A residential rental lease agreement is a contract between the landlord and the tenant, detailing all the information relevant to the tenant renting a specific property from the landlord.

As you can see above – the information required in a residential rental lease agreement can be quite complex. That’s why we have our free rental lease generator above – you simply fill in the information, and then create the rental lease agreement to view immediately. We’ve made it extremely simple for you to create a residential rental lease.

Your rental lease agreement should provide the type of premises, and the location of the premises. There may be varied information you need to put in depending on whether it is a house, condo or mobile home – so that information is necessary to fill in.

A rental lease agreement should always have basic guidelines in regard to the premises, such as a minimum age, or any information about smoking, pets and parking. You need to write a lot of this information in the lease agreement because if the agreement is breached, then you need to be able to show your tenants signature on the actual agreement, with the details of the specific breach. If the violation is not listed in the agreement and was just a verbal agreement, then it will make it much tougher for you to get the violation stopped.

At times, the landlord may need to enter the premises in non-emergency situations. You can’t just enter at any time – you need to provide a certain amount of days notice, and also issue a notice to enter. This is also required when filling in our form above.

The landlords name and address, as well as the tenants name and address, should be listed within the agreement. Multiple tenants or landlords? No problem! As you can see above – simply click “Two Landlords” or “Three Tenants” and you’ll be able to put in all the required information to cover multiple landlords or tenants. We’ve thought of everything you’d never need.

The lease agreement should also state whether it is actually a lease agreement or a residential rental agreement, and the details as to when the agreement starts or end. Termination notice details, such as information in regard to a breach of lease, or the amount of days notice of termination the landlord or tenant must give, can be written into the agreement.

Payment information to include in a rental lease agreement should include how often rent is paid, the amount, how the payment is to be made, and the date of which the payment shall be made. If there is any penalties for late rent payments, then you may wish to include that in your lease agreement.

There are then a few basic details that are usually required on a lease agreement, such as lead paint details.

State Specific Rental Lease Agreement:

One thing you will appreciate about our rental lease agreement template is that it is state specific. Many states have different rules when it comes to rental lease agreements. We have people always looking for New York NY Rental Lease agreements, or Ohio agreements, or Florida and California rental lease agreements. Our rental lease agreement template will change depending on the state that the premises is located, to completely accommodate your requirements.
