Nebraska Roommate Agreement Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Nebraska Roommate Agreement Form is a method to document the contractual agreement made between Co-Tenants of a property being leased. Oftentimes, a few people may agree it is preferable to co-habit with one another in a residence that would otherwise be beyond their financial ability to attain then uphold the financial responsibility of living there. Usually only one or two of these Co-Tenants will hold the Master Lease with the Property Owner.

This leaves the other roommates at somewhat of a disadvantage since they do not hold such an agreement with the Property Owner. Thus, in order to solidify their right to live there beyond a handshake agreement (which can be disastrous when unfortunate circumstances effect a roommate arrangement) a written contract between the roommates and obligating each one, including the Lease Holder, may serve as a valuable remedy to all involved. This protection will serve the lease holder as well since this entity is responsible for the condition of this residence, making sure all the expenses required to maintain the residence is paid, and the Co-Tenants are in compliance with the Master Lease’s regulations for the property and its area. It should be noted that while this contract does not obligate the Property Owner to the non-lease holding members of this household, it is a legal and binding contract which is enforceable in a court of law.
