The Kansas lease agreements are legal documents that bind a landlord and tenant over the use of property for residential or commercial purposes. The contract will usually have a beginning and end date with the terms for how much the lessee is to pay on a monthly basis to the lessor. After the document has been signed by all parties they will be legally bound to perform and cannot terminate the agreement without consent from each other.

Rental Application – To be used after a tenant becomes interested in renting space so the owner/agent may view their credentials such as credit, background, previous employers, and previous landlords.
