Create a North Dakota Lease Agreement with our attorney-drafted template!
A North Dakota lease agreement is a written agreement between a landlord and a tenant that’s legally binding. It explains the duties and obligations of both parties as it relates to the property listed in the agreement. All North Dakota lease agreements should comply with landlord-tenant law.
The most commonly used North Dakota lease agreements are a standard residential lease agreement (usually good for 12 months), a month-to-month lease, a roommate agreement, a sublease agreement, a lease to own agreement, and a commercial lease agreement.
The information that you must include in a standard North Dakota lease agreement for a residential unit includes:
The lease must be dated and signed by the tenant and the landlord or it isn’t legally binding.
Under North Dakota law, the landlord must provide a property checklist for the tenant to detail the condition of the premises when they move in. The landlord must provide the tenant with reasonable notice to enter the property. The landlord must also only enter the property during reasonable hours of the day.
If the residential property is built before 1978, federal law requires the landlord to provide a lead paint disclosure.
The landlord must deposit the security deposit into an interest-bearing savings of checking account. The interest should be returned to the tenant along with the security deposit. The landlord cannot request more than one month of rent for a residential unit with no pets and no more than two months of rent (not to exceed $2,500) if a pet will be allowed. The security deposit must be returned to the tenant within 30 days of the end of the lease.
