Quite a number of the twenty-five items presented will need some fairly specific information to be entered. Once this information is entered and the lease has been signed by both parties it will become a binding agreement. Obviously, one should not sign any contract unless all the information regarding its terms and conditions have been input and this one is no different.

This agreement is in full compliance with all the applicable statutes of the Kentucky Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act and will be binding once signed. This does not exclude the option to expand upon the agreement provided it is lawful and does not violate either party’s rights. Merely document the additional provisions of the agreement made, date it, make sure it bears the signatures of all involved parties then attach it to the lease.
