North Dakota Month-to-Month Rental Agreement
A North Dakota month-to-month rental agreement allows for a tenant and landlord to create a rental arrangement with no end date that renews every month automatically upon payment. Although it is a short term rental arrangement, the terms and conditions must follow the State laws as if it were a standard one-year contract.
North Dakota Rental Application Form
The North Dakota rental application form is part of the application process. Prior to the lease, a tenant submits this form and a small fee. The landlord uses the information to order credit, criminal, and rental history reports in order to find the perfect candidate to rent a property.
North Dakota Roommate Agreement
A North Dakota roommate agreement is useful to roommates intent on producing a written report on the terms each party has agreed to. Once this form has been completed (with the information supplied by the preparer) and signed by each roommate, it will be considered a legal contract holding each signature party responsible for following the terms and conditions defined therein.
North Dakota Commercial Lease Agreement
A North Dakota commercial lease agreement is a legal document used to delineate an arrangement between a landlord of commercial real estate and a business entity occupying the space in exchange for monthly payments. The agreement form will feature fields wherein both parties can enter their information and define the terms of the lease including the length of term (usually three-five years), the cost of rent, who is liable for utility payments, and the option to renew. It would behoove the landlord to research the business entity and its executives prior to executing a lease agreement to determine their reliability.
