Utah Rental Lease Agreements | Laws

A Utah lease agreement is a contract between a tenant and landlord that outlines the terms and conditions of tenancy. The provisions included in the lease will determine the monthly rent payment including the due date and applicable penalties for non-payment.

Each lease will also state the contract term in which the tenant is entitled to possession of the premises. Typically, residential leases will either be a fixed contract of one (1) year or a month-to-month agreement with no predetermined end date.
