The South Dakota Standard Residential Lease Agreement is a legal document that is basically a residential rental contract that is not as complicated as a usual residential rental agreement,  for use between landlord and tenant. Although the form may be a basic form, all landlord/tenant’s rights will remain intact and remain enforceable by South Dakota laws. The form must be properly completed and carefully reviewed by all parties involved, prior to the entering of signatures. If any party is unsure of what the language means to them, they may choose to consult with a knowledgeable attorney for guidance and advice.
