New Hampshire Roommate Rental Agreement Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The New Hampshire Roommate Rental Agreement Form will strengthen an agreement between Co-Tenants with a written document outlining the exact rental co-habitation arrangement that was agreed to originally. It can be very exciting to gain a high quality residence that would otherwise be beyond one’s capabilities, especially if the method is by sharing the residence with previous acquaintances or those of a like mind-set in lifestyle.

However, many factors need to be addressed in addition to merely paying the rent on time (this is non-negotiable of course). For instance, “Who’s name will the utilities be in?” ” How long will this agreement be for?” and “What is the security deposit amount and who will be responsible for how much?” are all questions that must be answered. This document shall address some questions and a few more. In fact, it will cover the basic concerns that should be addressed when two or more people decide to share the expenses in a single residence. Of course, not every situation is the same so there will be ample opportunity to personalize this agreement in some sections. In the case where additional agreements have been made, one may attach them to this document (so long as they are titled, dated and signed). So long as every part of the agreement has been documented and presented with this contract, the signatures of each party shall be considered binding to the arrangement each party expects the other to live up to.
