The North Dakota standard residential lease agreement is a rental contract between a landlord and a tenant that lasts one (1) year, although the term can be any fixed time period. The tenant’s main responsibility is to pay the landlord the monthly amount detailed in the agreement (typically on the first of every month) while the landlord’s duty is to ensure the rental space remains in a livable condition. All potential lessees should fill out a rental application to verify their employment and financial history, as well as their criminal background. If approved, the lease will be drafted and a security deposit may be requested at the time of authorization.
