Create a Tennessee Lease Agreement with our attorney-drafted template!
A Tennessee lease agreement is a written agreement between a landlord and a tenant. The landlord agrees to allow the tenant to use the leased property in exchange for the rent the tenant ill pay. All Tennessee lease agreements must comply with the Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act.
The most commonly used Tennessee lease agreements are the standard residential lease agreement, a month to month lease agreement, a roommate agreement, a sublease agreement, a lease to own agreement, and a commercial lease agreement.
To write a standard Tennessee lease agreement, you’ll need:
A Tennessee lease agreement must be signed and dated by both the landlord and the tenant.
Landlords are required to disclose the identity of any agent allowed onto the premises. They must also provide an address for legal notices. The landlord must give at least 24 hours of notice to the tenant to show the property before the end of the lease. However, for the landlord to have the power to show the property while the tenant is still residing on the property, that must be listed specifically in the lease.
There is no state law that caps the amount the landlord can request as a security deposit. The security deposit must be returned to the tenant within 30 days of the end of the lease.
