A Nevada standard residential lease agreement contains all the necessary provisions to maintain a fair and mutually beneficial rental arrangement between a landlord and a tenant to whom they are renting residential property. While every rental arrangement is unique, most lease agreements will be comprised of similar terms and conditions that will govern the relationship between the parties. Some of these standard terms include the length of the lease, rent amount, payment date, security deposits, termination options, rights and obligations of both parties, and utilities and services.
Typically, the landlord will walk through the rental unit with the tenant to inspect the condition of the premises and discuss security deposits and other fees, rent amount, and other information that may factor into the tenant’s decision to rent the property. Once both parties are content with the agreement, they can sign the document and enter into a legally binding rental arrangement.
