Nebraska Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template
The Nebraska standard residential lease agreement is the most popular type of rental contract as it gives both the landlord and tenant security by establishing a fixed-term rental period. 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. This process benefits the landlord by confirming whether the tenant is currently employed, has good credit, and has a positive leasing record with other landlords. The landlord will usually ask for one (1) month’s rent as a security deposit as that is the State cap (§ 76-1416).
