Connecticut Standard Residential Lease Agreement

Updated December 06, 2022

A Connecticut standard lease agreement is a fixed contract that lets a landlord rent property to a tenant with a start and end date. It is recommended to attach the Landlord-Tenant Handbook 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.
