The Kansas roommate agreement is a contract that binds individuals who share the same leased premises to a set of rules and responsibilities. The agreement is supplemental to the roommates’ lease and does not involve the landlord. However, the roommate contract cannot include any provisions that contradict the terms of their lease.
A roommate contract states how rent and utility costs are divided among roommates, and it provides standards for behavior that must be followed by each signatory. Completing and signing this agreement keeps all parties accountable for fulfilling their responsibilities without dispute. In the event that a roommate is non-compliant with the contract, they may be asked to move out or face legal action.
