Residential House Lease Agreement


Overview
- The Residential House Lease Agreement is used by the owner of a house who is leasing the house to one or more individuals as a personal residence.
- Many individuals have acquired houses that they lease to others.  Many times the leased house will generate a positive cash flow, while providing the owner a net tax deduction.
- Anyone considering leasing a house should use a written lease agreement.  Most states require that any agreement regarding an interest in real estate, such as a lease, be in writing to be enforceable.
