Idaho Standard Residential Lease Agreement

An Idaho standard residential lease agreement is used by a landlord and tenant to enter into an arrangement whereby the tenant rents the landlord’s property in exchange for monthly rent payments. The tenant may also need to pay a security deposit, upfront rent, and other expenses as defined by the lease. Any utilities, appliances, and services included in the rental price must be stated in the written agreement. Once both parties have signed the document, they will be legally bound to its terms and conditions for the duration of the contract (the standard term is one (1) year).
