Oklahoma Rental Lease Agreements | Laws

An Oklahoma lease agreement is a contract between a landlord and a tenant for the rental of residential or commercial property. It is important that the contract includes all of the landlord’s terms regarding rent payments, utilities, prohibited actions, and special fees to ensure that they will have the legal right to take action should the tenant fail to fulfill any rental condition. If a tenant does not comply with the terms of their lease, the landlord can serve them a notice to quit and start an eviction action against them in court. In addition to commercial and residential lease templates, month-to-month, sublease, and roommate agreements are provided below.
