A Tennessee roommate agreement is a contract between two (2) or more roommates with the intention of setting forth the terms and conditions of their living arrangement. Having a roommate agreement in place will allow the tenants to establish fair and mutually beneficial living conditions amongst themselves, as long as the terms don’t interfere with the original lease.
Some of the terms included in a roommate agreement are the distribution of rent payments, security deposits, and other fees, division of duties, guest rules, noise levels and quiet times, and common area usage. While this agreement is a separate arrangement from the lease agreement signed by the landlord and each tenant, it is still legally binding upon the parties once it is signed by all roommates.
