Ohio Standard Residential Lease Agreement – PDF Template
The Ohio residential lease agreement is between a property owner (otherwise known as the “Lessor”) and a person looking to occupy the property or space (otherwise known as the “Lessee”) for a period of time. The most common timeframe is a one (1) year term but can be any agreed upon length of time. The terms and conditions must be upheld by both parties until the end date and the most common areas of negotiation are usually:
- Sum of the Monthly Payment
- Security Deposit
- Length of Term
- Fees (Such as parking, garbage, etc.)
- Pet Deposit (if any)
If the unit was constructed prior to 1978 the landlord must attach HUD’s lead based paint disclosure form to the contract and have the tenant authorize.
