Making a Washington Lease Agreement
If you're renting out your property to a tenant, you'll want to make sure you have a written Lease Agreement signed before the tenant moves into the property. By signing a Lease Agreement, both the landlord and tenant are essentially putting the terms of their agreement to rent the property in writing.
Use the Washington Lease Agreement document if:
Although there's no standard Lease Agreement, there are still some basic requirements that should be included in every lease. These include: the names of the landlord and tenant; the address of the property; the amount of rent; when the rent is due, who it should be paid to, and where it's to be paid; the amount and purpose of the security deposit; the amount of any late fee; whether pets are allowed; who's responsible for which utilities; and information about lead based paint on the property.
In Washington, there's also additional requirements that must be included in the Lease Agreement. For example, in addition to the actual Lease Agreement, the landllord must also provide the tenant with an inventory and inspection checklist (required whenever a deposit is collected) and the Department of Health mold hand out. All terms required by the State of Washington have already been included in the Lease Agreement.
