Create a high quality document online now!

The North Dakota Standard Rental Agreement is a legal document that outlines the rights as well as the obligations of both the tenant as well as the landlord. The standard lease, or rental agreement, will always include the terms and conditions of the agreement and will generally specify the length of the agreement, how much rent the tenant(s) should expect to pay on a monthly basis as well as the amount of the security deposit along with any other important information.

Any lease agreement will usually state the landlord’s rules for pets, parking, common areas among other rules for the premises for which they are responsible. North Dakota state laws regulate rental agreements ie: typically the state will place limits on how much security deposit a landlord may charge, when deposits, rent, late fees and other fees are due. Tenants should carefully read through any standard rental agreement to be certain that they fully understand what they are signing. If the tenant(s) are unsure of what they are signing, they should seek the advice of a knowledgeable attorney for assistance.
