A Utah standard residential lease agreement allows a landlord and tenant to enter into a legally binding rental arrangement and relays the terms of the agreement in a document executed by both parties. A lease must provide the rental price, lease term, and landlord’s rules. The standard lease term is one (1) year with rent paid on a monthly basis. More often than not, the tenant will have the option to renew for another year after the expiration of the initial term. Any terms not included in the lease will not be legally binding.
