Ohio Standard Residential Lease Agreement

The Ohio Standard Residential Lease Agreement is a form used prior to a tenant moving in to provide a set of legally-binding rules and conditions that the tenants are required to abide-by. The form, which is signed by both the landlord and tenant(s), covers a wide range of topics used for ensuring 1) the unit remains damage-free, 2) rent is paid on-time and in-full, and 3) provides documentation to an arrangement in which a for-rent property is leased to one or more tenants for an average term of one (1) year. In addition to establishing basic details such as names, addresses, and rent amount, the document contains sections pertaining to utilities, maintenance, pets, default (if it were to occur), and security deposits, to name a few.
