Nevada Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Nevada Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template is a blank contract form which may be filled in then signed by its participants to solidify a property rental agreement. This is done by putting the agreed upon terms, conditions, and necessary disclosures in writing for all signature parties to reference in the future should there be any question regarding one’s responsibilities. The added benefit to this is that once a lease contract such as this one is signed its terms are enforceable. That is a signature party violating its responsibilities, as laid out in this contract, may be compelled to fulfill its obligations by a court of law.

This form is a simple and easy to use form that contains several sections. Some of which will require information from a preparer. It is worth mentioning that while this lease is in accordance with the Nevada Fair Housing Law (NRS 118.010), it will also be up to the preparer of this document to remain in compliance with state laws. For instance, while the security deposit information must be filled in (such numbers vary from lease to lease) the preparer may not enter a number that is more than three months’ rent (NRS 118A.242). Therefore, it is important to make sure one is aware of the statutes requiring adherence on both the state and local levels.
