Nebraska Residential Lease Agreement
Nebraska residential lease agreements are the most popular type of rental contracts as they give both the landlord and tenant security by electing to rent property for a fixed period of time. Due to the term being usually one (1) year, it is standard for the lessor to check the tenant’s credentials with the rental application in order to ensure that they are currently employed, have good credit, and have a positive leasing record with other tenants.
The landlord will usually ask for one (1) month’s security deposit (per Statute 76-1416) as that is the State cap and upon the agreement being signed the document becomes legally binding.
