Delaware Standard Residential Lease Agreement

The Delaware Standard Residential Lease Agreement is a contract that once signed by a landlord (lessor) and tenant (lessee), legally binds the parties to adhere to the rules, terms, and conditions that the lessor and lessee are legally bound to follow. The duration of the lease is twelve (12) months and requires the tenant pay rent in equal monthly installments unless otherwise stated in the document. Delaware law requires landlords include several required disclosures into the agreement, including the names and addresses of all the property owners, agents, or person presumed to be the landlord of the property. The landlord is also legally required to give the tenant a copy of the agreement after signatures have been recorded.
