Oklahoma rental agreements are contracts written for landlords and tenants when renting commercial or residential property.

When accepting a new tenant, it is recommended a landlord use a rental application before authorizing a binding lease.

Rental Application – The landlord can use this form to allow the tenant to enter their personal and employment information to ensure they are credible.
