The Kansas roommate agreement upholds the accord for a tenant to rent within a shared unit for a stipulated monthly price via a written record. When individuals arrange to live in a home together, it is recommended to document the structure of the deal. Documentation is necessary so that all involved parties have an express account of the rights they will acquire and the duties for which each will be responsible. Signing the paperwork will hold each roommate to the agreement in the eyes of the law, providing accountability for all involved in the transaction. The contract summarizes the identities of those involved, monthly payments, assignment of utilities and services, and house rules to be followed. The landlord is also obligated to sign the commitment for it to be a valid submission.
