Wyoming Standard Residential Lease Agreement

The Wyoming standard residential lease agreement is used to establish a rental arrangement between a landlord and tenant in a legal document signed by both parties. Once completed, the lease will relay all the terms and conditions of the agreement, including the rental price, lease term, tenant’s responsibilities, and landlord’s rules and right to access.

The document will also list any additional fees, payments, and deposits that the tenant will be required to make, as well as any utilities, appliances, and furnishings that are included in the rental. The document becomes legally binding when both parties have signed, and it remains effective for the duration of its terms or until the contract is breached.

Security Deposits

Returning (§ 1-21-1208(a)) – Thirty (30) days from lease termination date or fifteen (15) days from the date that the landlord receives the tenant’s new address.


When is Rent Due?

State law does not specify when rent must be paid or if the tenant is allowed a grace period before late fees can be charged for past due rent. Therefore, rent is due as stated in the lease and the tenant will not receive a grace period unless the written agreement provides for one.
