Vermont Standard Residential Lease Agreement Template
The Vermont standard residential lease agreement is a rental contract between a landlord and a tenant renting a residential dwelling. Before presenting a potential tenant with the lease, the landlord will check the tenant’s credit and other background information through the rental application. Once the tenant has been approved, the parties can go through the agreement to make sure the terms and conditions are fair. The length of a standard lease is one (1) year, but the parties may decide to extend the term upon certain conditions. After the terms are agreed upon, the parties will sign the form and, if it has been recognized in the agreement, the tenant will pay the security deposit.
