A Florida roommate agreement relays the rules and responsibilities to which all parties living under the same roof must agree in order to reside in the shared living space. The form is separate from the tenants’ lease agreement with their landlord and is commonly drafted prior to the lease’s initial term. The document states the amount of rent and expenses that each roommate must pay, and it establishes rules regarding common areas, food sharing, cleaning duties, overnight guests, and quiet hours. Creating a signed agreement ensures that all the roommates clearly understand their obligations and helps to maintain a harmonious living environment.
