The Arizona roommate agreement issues a paper form to recount the details of the imposed commitment to lease the use of a shared dwelling for monthly compensation. The written arrangement covers multiple facets of the rights and responsibilities of the individual entering into the agreement as well as the other roommates residing at the property. The contract pinpoints accurately what each roommate will pay for utilities and services and what portion of the rent is to be remitted each month.
In addition to the primary lease conditions, the form contains allocated paragraphs addressing common area usage, cleaning duties, and household supplies reimbursement. Although the document serves to protect liability for the endorsing individuals, it does not supersede an existing lease agreement between a landlord and tenant. Make sure to have a conversation with the leasing tenant to ensure that additional roommates are allowed with the current leasing contract.
