The Minnesota roommate agreement is a document that binds two (2) or more roommates to a set of rules concerning the renting of a shared dwelling. Unlike a lease agreement, the roommate agreement is designed to prevent conflict between household members and has no involvement with the landlord. The agreement clarifies policies on overnight guests, smoking, cleaning routines, firearms, and quiet hours. Of equal importance, the document indicates the amount of rent each occupant is required to pay in addition to their portion of the utility fees.
