North Carolina Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template

Updated August 08, 2023

A North Carolina standard residential lease agreement is a fixed-term rental contract between a landlord and tenant. The tenant will pay rent on a monthly basis to the landlord to use the residential space until the end date stated in the lease. Before a lease is signed, a landlord will commonly check the prospective tenant’s credit, via a rental application, while charging a small fee for the verification.
