The South Carolina roommate agreement holds individuals who are partaking in the rental of a shared residence accountable for their responsibilities as a tenant and fellow housemate. When deciding to live with others for the sake of saving money, it is important to establish the ground rules prior to commencing the arrangement. This means that the future coinhabitants should record some of the following details within the instrument:
- Date in which rent & utility payments are due.
- Cleaning responsibilities.
- Guest requirements.
- General code of conduct for the premises.
Once the roommates come to a consensus on the terms of the living arrangement, they may then sign the document as confirmation that they acknowledge the conditions made.
