A Michigan standard residential lease agreement is a document that legally binds a landlord and tenant into a rental contract. The landlord agrees to lease the property while the tenant agrees to occupy and pay rent on a monthly basis. A landlord will usually request to verify the tenant’s credentials through a rental application before signing an agreement. After approval, the parties will negotiate and authorize the terms of a lease.
