Roommate Agreement

A Roommate Agreement is a document used when two or more people are moving into a shared space and would like to outline the rights and responsibilities of each person moving in. While a lease agreement covers the rights and responsibilities of the tenants in relation to the landlord, it often does not cover the relationships between the roommates themselves. For that reason, a Roommate Agreement is a great idea whenever people decide to live together.

In a well-written Roommate Agreement, you'll be able to talk through and memorialize what is expected of each of the roommates. Basic living situations are covered, such as whether or not the roommates expect quiet hours, as well as more general rules, such as whether or not pets are allowed on the premises.

By creating a Roommate Agreement, you'll be less likely to run into disputes with your particular roommates down the line, as everything should be neatly written in the agreement that all the roommates sign. Roommate Agreements can help make everything clear from the beginning.

How to use this document

Use this document when you are moving into a shared living space with one or more people and you would like to set up your expectations before commencing a lease. With this Roommate Agreement, you'll be able to hit several important points of agreement, such as how the security deposit, rent, and utilities will get paid, as well as how you plan to utilize your common areas in the dwelling.

This Roommate Agreement should be agreed to and signed by each of the parties that will be living in the shared space. Make sure you go over each of the provisions with all of the roommates to ensure everyone knows exactly what to expect.

Applicable law

There are no laws outlining what must be put into a Roommate Agreement, but a best practice is to outline as much information as possible to ensure that everyone is on the same page. You may be subject to the laws of your individual state regarding your lease and regarding general contract principles.
