The Washington Standard Lease Agreement drafts a uniform document to record the stipulated commitments to a leasing arrangement. When an owner of a residential dwelling persues action to rent a property, it is standard practice to make a tangible account of the transaction for future reference, liability, and accountability purposes. The form serves to include information to register the following facts:

  • Name(s) of the Property Owner(s)
  • Name(s) of the Tenant(s)
  • Names(s) of the Additional Occupant(s)
  • Leased Property Address
  • Rental Rate
  • Due Dates
  • Damage Deposit(s)
  • Lease Term

The instituted legal arrangement additionally makes a note of all established building protocols and permissions granted to both landlord and tenant for the length of the contract. Providing signatures from each of the involved parties will institute the terms’ approval and indicate acceptance of all promises included therein.

Rental Application – When pursuing a lease agreement as a tenant,  it is common to first undergo a background evaluation before entering into an accord. A rental application prompts the possible tenant to answer questions regarding their identity and provide responses to give an idea of their rental history. The information provided, along with the applicant’s signature, will allow the lessor to conduct a background check on the individual to consider eligibility to rent.
