Kansas Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template
The Kansas standard residential lease agreement is a rental contract with a standard one (1) year term for the habitation of livable space. The agreement is simple, straightforward, and effective at putting forth the terms and conditions of an arrangement for the use of a residence for monthly rent. The only items to negotiate are the monthly rent, who is responsible for the utilities, and the security deposit amount (if any). The lease typically goes into effect once the landlord reviews the rental application, provided the landlord requires the tenant to complete one. If the tenant is approved, the landlord will usually ask for the security deposit which may not be more than one (1) month’s rent for unfurnished units and one and a half (1.5) months’ rent for furnished places.
