Oregon Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Oregon Standard Residential Rental Agreement is a legal document that is written to outline the rights and the obligations of both the tenant and landlord. The standard lease will include the terms and conditions of the agreement and will most generally specify the length of the agreement.

The document will state how much rent the tenant(s) should expect to pay on a monthly basis and the amount of the security deposit along and any other charges to expect. Any lease agreement will usually state the landlord’s rules for vehicle parking, rules for pets and visitors, rules for common areas among other rules for the premises for which they are responsible.  Tenants should carefully read through any standard rental agreement to be certain that they fully understand the terms and conditions of what they are signing. If the tenant(s) are not certain of what they are reading in the document, they should seek the advice of a knowledgeable attorney for assistance.
