Lodger agreement checklist

Make it Legal™ Checklist

Here are a few important steps to take to finish your document

Read the document to make sure it meets your needs and that everyone involved agrees with the Lodger Agreement.

Remember that if you have any questions you can easily Ask a lawyer.

Both the owner and the lodger (the parties) must sign the Lodger Agreement. You can sign your Lodger Agreement by either: 

Signing online

  1. You can sign online using RocketSign.

  2. You can send an email request inviting the other party (eg your lodger) to sign. 

Signing in print

  1. Print a copy of your Lodger Agreement for each party. Everybody should sign and date all copies.

A copy of your Lodger Agreement will be stored automatically in your Rocket Lawyer account ‘Dashboard’.

If you signed and sent your lodger online, you should also download and securely store a copy of your agreement for your records.

If you signed in print, you should securely store your paper copy of the signed Lodger Agreement.

The owner:

  1. Must provide the lodger with a copy of the agreement.

  2. Should as a matter of good practice place any deposit in a separate bank account.

  3. Should make an Inventory of the room and its contents.
