Kansas Residential Lease Agreement
The Kansas residential lease is the most popular of this type as it is a standard one (1) year term for the use of livable space. The agreement is simple, straightforward, and effective at putting forth the terms and conditions an arrangement for the use of a residence for monthly rent. The only items to negotiate are the monthly rent, who is responsible for the utilities, and the Security Deposit amount (if any).
The lease typically goes into effect once the landlord reviews the rental application (if the landlord requires the tenant to complete one). If the tenant is approved, the landlord will usually ask for the Security Deposit (if any) which may not be more than one (1) months’ rent for unfurnished units and one and a half (1.5) months’ rent for furnished places.
Move-in Checklist – If the landlord requires a security deposit, this form must be completed within the first five (5) days the tenant moves into the property.
Lead-Based Paint Disclosure – If the tenant is moving into a unit that was built before 1978, this document must be attached to the lease agreement and signed by all occupants.
