The Nebraska roommate agreement is used to define the responsibilities and rights of tenants who share a residential space. It is a private contract between co-tenants and may be executed, altered, or terminated without the landlord’s approval. Since the state does not govern roommate agreements, the tenants are free to include as many or as few stipulations as they like. That said, the document should always state the financial obligations of the tenants including the monthly rent and shared utilities. Additional provisions concerning cleaning, overnight guests, pets, and loud music should also be addressed in the document.
