A Vermont standard residential lease agreement is a rental contract with a fixed-term, usually for one (1) year, between a landlord and tenant. The landlord will usually verify the tenant’s credentials (e.g. credit check, income, etc.) by collecting a filled-in rental application by the tenant. After approval, the landlord and tenant will authorize a lease with occupancy beginning on the lease start date.
