When you make a decision to rent a property - whether it is a residential unit where you will reside or an office for your growing business, - it is important to prepare and sign proper documentation. It will serve as evidence since rental agreements and related documents are reviewed by authorities and courts in case there is a disagreement between you, the tenant, and your landlord. Additionally, you can be sure your finances are safe and enjoy a better contractual relationship with the landlord if both parties are aware of each other's demands and plans.

Real Estate Forms for Tenants will document every stage of the process - let the landlord learn more about yourself, your criminal, credit, and rental history, inspect the house, office, or store before moving in, establish rules of residence, make modifications and adjustments to existing arrangements, and terminate the lease early if there are any issues or you have simply found a better place to stay or work.

Types of Real Estate Forms for Tenants 

Our guide on Real Estate Forms filled out by tenants will tell you more about the rights and duties you have before the lease is signed, during your stay at the rental unit, and even after the contract is canceled. 

Moving In 

These Tenant Real Estate Forms will be useful for any person or entity that negotiates the rental agreement or lease with the owner of the property they are interested in. Additionally, you may outline the rights and responsibilities of multiple tenants who live together and examine the rental unit before signing any papers. 

  • Rental Application. Confirm your intention to become a tenant and offer the potential landlord a possibility to perform a background check;
  • How to Rent Your First Apartment? If you want to rent a place for the first time in your life,  learn about the steps to do so safely and legally;
  • A Roommate Agreement is signed by two and more individuals occupying the same residence to arrange the finances and agree upon the rules of cohabitation;
  • A Cohabitation Agreement allows couples to divide their financial obligations during the rental period and separate assets in case one of them or both move out of the residence;
  • Home Inspection Forms let both parties to the rental agreement examine the current condition of the property before and after the tenant moves out;
  • Landlord Reference Letter. Share your rental history with the new landlord to prove your trustworthiness by obtaining a recommendation from the former landlord;  
  • Rental Inspection Checklist. Do not miss anything while inspecting the quality of the rental unit with the help of our list;
  • A Co-Tenancy Agreement is completed when there is more than one tenant to clarify the parties' responsibilities regarding the property. 

Negotiating Your Lease 

Amend the original lease if you become a pet owner, want to sublet the property to someone else, confirm you will prolong the contract, or add any other provision to the agreement. 

  • A Sublease Agreement is prepared by the tenant and the third party - the latter may rent the property, often taking place of the original tenant who has to move out;
  • Lease Renewal Letter. Certify your intention to stay in your residential or commercial unit by notifying the landlord about the renewal;
  • A Pet Addendum is required to permit the tenant to own pets who live on the rental property;
  • Addendum to Lease. If you do not need to change a clause in the original contract but simply add a new rule or provision, use this document;
  • A Mold Addendum informs the property occupants about the necessity to make sure the rental unit remains mold-free; 
  • Assignment of Lease Form. Transfer your interest in the lease to another individual or entity and move out. 

Your Rights as a Tenant 

You can receive a rent reimbursement, protect your rights in advance by examining the residence or office space or when you encounter a problem, or inform the other party about your decision to move out. 

  • Complaint Letter to Landlord. If you have an issue you need to discuss with the landlord and probably even solve with their assistance, tell them about it in writing;  
  • A Rent Rebate Form lets the tenant with a low income or disability to receive a refund once they pay taxes on the rented house or apartment;
  • Noise Complaint Letter to Neighbor. Tell the property owner about your neighbors that bother you with excessive noise during the night;
  • Rental Property Inspection Checklist for Tenants. When you choose a residence for your family or office space for your business, assess its condition to decide whether to rent it;
  • A Notice of Intent to Vacate is used to warn the landlord 30 or 60 days in advance about your wish to leave the property once the lease expires or before that.
