Ohio Residential Lease Agreement
The Ohio residential lease agreement, also known as a Standard Lease, is a one (1) year arrangement for the use of property by an individual in order to live day to day. The individual, known as the tenant, will be required to pay a monthly rental amount, be responsible for the utilities as described in the contract, and abide by the terms and conditions agreed upon by the parties.
The landlord should take caution with every potential lessee by screening them with the rental application for credit, background, and previous housing purposes. This will give the landlord a good idea of who the tenant is and if they are in a position to afford the agreed upon monthly rent.
