A lease agreement is designed to protect both the owner and tenant should any dispute arise regarding the property. A lease includes all of the responsibilities of both parties and defines what steps are taken when the obligations are not met. When composing a lease for a trailer park or land, make the document a well-written, easy-to-understand agreement.
Review the laws in your state. Since every state has landlord/tenant laws. Make sure you are aware of what is permitted before creating your lease agreement.
Start your lease agreement for a trailer park or land with the “Parties” section. First, type the word “Landlord(s)” and leave a long blank line for your name. Next, type in the word “Tenant(s)” followed by another long blank line. Enter the tenant information on the line. Continue this paragraph by typing the full address of the property to be leased.
Compose the terms of the agreement. This will include the amount of the deposit and payments, the length of the lease, who is responsible for the utilities and repairs, and any other information that is pertinent to the agreement. When composing the terms, remember that a lease agreement is a legal document that is designed to hold up in a court of law.
Add a condition of premises to your lease agreement. Whether you are leasing a trailer park or land, the landlord and tenants should agree on the condition of the property when the agreement is signed. Also, add a "hold harmless" statement that relieves you from responsibility relating to any damage to the tenant's personal property.
Write a paragraph to state how many occupants are allowed on the premises. Also, include whether pets are allowed and what restrictions apply.
Put into writing the landlord’s right of entry. This section explains when and how a landlord can inspect the property.
Add a signature line for each party involved. Receive a copy of the tenant(s) identification before allowing him to sign the lease agreement. Date the agreement and supply a copy for all parties.
Know the laws in your state. Make all terms clear.
