Washington D.C. Standard Residential Lease Agreement

Updated March 22, 2023

A Washington D.C. standard residential lease agreement is a document that creates a tenancy arrangement where the landlord allows the tenant to use space in return for monthly rent payments. The tenant will usually be screened prior to signing a lease with the employment and credit information to be verified. Once approved, the landlord will issue a written lease to be signed by both parties. After signing, the landlord will be owed first month’s rent and a security deposit (if any).
