A Connecticut standard lease agreement is a fixed contract that lets a landlord rent property to a tenant with a start and end date. Under State law, the landlord is required to attach the Handbook (see below) to the lease to inform the tenant of their rights and responsibilities. It is highly recommended that the landlord check the tenant’s employment and credit background through a rental application. Once the tenant is approved, the agreement should be signed by both parties.
