When to Use

  • You are a landlord, property manager, or property owner and want to rent or lease the property to one or more residential tenants.
  • The tenant will occupy the property for a fixed term or periodic term, such as a week-to-week, month-to-month, or year-to-year tenancy.
  • You want an agreement that protects your property from negligent tenants with options for security deposits, co-signers, standard fees, and clear responsibilities.

Other Names for This Document

  • Residential rental agreement – While a “rental agreement” typically means a month-to-month tenancy and a “lease agreement” means a fixed-term tenancy, both agreements offer the same protections.
  • Use a commercial lease agreement when the tenant does not live on the property but instead uses it to conduct business.
