The Nebraska rental lease agreements are created to bind an individual who owns property (a landlord/lessor) and an individual who is seeking to occupy the space for commercial or residential use (a tenant/lessee). The landlord should always verify the credentials of each applicant to deter those who might cause damage to the premises or fail to pay rent. To screen potential tenants, the landlord should have the individual fill out a rental application. The tenant will be expected to pay rent on the date stated in the agreement, usually the first (1st) of every month.
