Nevada Roommate Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Nevada Roommate Agreement Template gives roommates or co-tenants the security of knowing their roommate terms are set in stone and enforceable for the duration of the agreement each has entered. This is a powerful tool for promoting a positive relationship in such a living arrangement. Unfortunately, misunderstandings have been known to spoil otherwise fruitful living situations either as time goes on or when unforeseen events have occurred. In such circumstances, a handshake verbal agreement may not necessarily provide validity to one’s argument or one’s understanding of an agreement they have entered. Simply put: there would be no proof. This may create quite a dilemma however a written agreement will remedy this situation nicely.

A written contract provides stability and continuity to an agreement. While many may shy away from the word ‘contract’ especially roommates with pre-existing relationships, it should be mentioned that a written contract may preserve or even save such otherwise positive relationships from turning sour due to a misunderstanding that has grown to a hostile living situation. Furthermore, this agreement will cover the ground necessary for the basis of a long term co-tenant living situation. In cases, where there is no previous relationship, this contract provides security in that it will be enforceable in a court of law should any signing party violate its terms and conditions while it is in effect.
