An Idaho lease agreement is a written legal document between the property owner (generally referred to as the landlord) and the person or persons (generally referred to as the tenant or the lessee) wanting to lease the described property.
The most commonly used Idaho lease agreements are broadly defined as commercial and residential. Residential lease agreements may be referred to as a standard lease agreement, month-to-month agreement, roommate agreement, lease to own agreement, and a subleasing agreement.
A standard Idaho lease agreement is used for residential property that is leased for a year. It should list:
Idaho state law doesn't require any specific disclosures that must be provided to the tenant by the landlord. However, federal law dictates that if the residential unit was built prior to 1978, the landlord must provide a lead-based paint disclosure.
Idaho does not limit how much a landlord may charge for a security deposit. However, state law does mention that a landlord must return the security deposit to the tenant within 21 days of them vacating the property. It may be returned as late as 30 days, but that must be specifically mentioned in the Idaho lease agreement.
