A Vermont roommate agreement is a type of rental contract designed to make a residential living arrangement between roommates fair and mutually beneficial. A roommate agreement is created after a lease has been signed by the tenants and the landlord; however, not necessarily every roommate that is on the roommate agreement will have signed the lease.
The terms and conditions of a roommate agreement are established to ensure each person pays their share of the rent, utilities, and any other fees associated with the rental unit. Once this agreement is signed by all parties, it becomes legally binding, and any default by a roommate could mean expulsion from the rental unit.
