New York Roommate Agreement

The New York Roommate Agreement is a handy document that allows roommates sharing the same apartment (or home) to establish a set of rules and routines that they all agree to follow on a daily basis. Not just to be used for strangers, completing the template is just as useful for friends, significant others, or family that are sharing a single living space. Dishes, cleaning, utility bills (wifi, water, electricity, etc.), noise, and guests are just some of the topics that can be laid out in the agreement. However – keep in mind that having these rules written down is not enough; having a procedure for conflict resolution is just as important for maintaining roommate harmony.
