The Mississippi standard residential lease agreement is the most common type of rental contract as it is for a fixed period of time (usually a year) and gives the landlord and tenant certain guarantees and securities during the term. The process usually begins with the tenant approving the space followed by negotiations on the rental agreement such as the monthly payment and who will be responsible for the utilities. Once these preliminary steps have been accomplished, the landlord will generally conduct a background and credit check through a rental application. If the lessee is approved, the tenant and landlord will typically sign an agreement immediately and at the lessor’s request, a security deposit may be required from the lessee. In the State of Mississippi, there are no mandatory disclosures to be transferred from landlord to tenant or any other requirement from either party other than the signing of a lease.
