The New Mexico standard residential lease agreement is a rental contract wherein a landlord and tenant come to terms regarding the exchange of livable space for monthly payments. The agreement is a fixed-term contract that will last for a term of one (1) year once it has been signed by the parties. The landlord will typically ask for the tenant’s personal, financial, and background information through the rental application to see if they approve of the potential lessee’s character. If the tenant is approved, the landlord will write a lease agreement and, at their sole discretion, ask for a security deposit which may not be more than the equivalent of one (1) month’s rent (§ 47-8-18).
