Idaho Lease Agreement Templates (6)

Updated May 18, 2024

An Idaho lease agreement is a rental contract between a landlord and a tenant. The landlord will commonly request to view the tenant’s credentials through a rental application prior to offering any agreement. Before the tenant can take occupancy, the landlord will require payment of the first month’s rent and the security deposit (if any).

Rental Application – Used to screen a tenant before authorizing a lease.

Security Deposits

Maximum Amount – There is no state maximum. The landlord may ask for as much as they want from the tenant.

Separate Bank Account – If the rental property is managed by a third-party agent, the deposit must be held in a dedicated bank account separate from the agent’s operating account.[2]

Returning to Tenant – The landlord must return the deposit within 21 days, unless another period no longer than 30 days is specified in the lease.[3]

  • Itemized List – If the full amount is not returned, a written statement itemizing the costs and reasons for the deductions must be provided to the tenant.

When is Rent Due?

Grace Period – There is no statutory grace period in Idaho. Therefore, rent is due on the date mentioned in the lease. If the rent is not paid, the landlord can use the 3-day notice to quit.

Maximum Late Fee – Any fees specified in the lease agreement, including fees for late rent, must be reasonable.[4]

NSF Fee – The maximum fee for a bad check is $20 or the amount of the check, whichever is less.[5]

Withholding Rent – Tenants do not have the right to withhold rent if the landlord fails to make essential repairs, but if the landlord fails to cure the defect within three days of receiving notice, the tenant can file a court complaint.[6]

Right to Enter (Landlord)

There is no state law providing that the landlord must give notice to the tenant before entering the premises for maintenance or any other issue. It is recommended that the landlord give written notice to maintain a healthy landlord-tenant relationship.


Unclaimed Property – The tenant has 72 hours to remove personal property after being evicted before the landlord may dispose of it. If property of value is left behind, the landlord should obtain a court order to remove the items and permission to sell them to cover costs.[7]
