Uses Lease Builder
Included in this Indiana lease agreement are the actual rental contract as well as a complete set of documents to aid you in managing your property legally and efficiently. This lease includes attorney-approved language that meets the state’s Landlord Tenant laws. As state laws are modified or amended, this lease will be updated to reflect those changes. This document also meets lease requirements for the city of Indianapolis.
All you have to do is complete fields in the 7-step Lease Builder, and follow instructions that appear in green text boxes that are titled Indiana Assist. For instance, one State Assist explains that Indiana requires the landlord/property manager to have tenants acknowledge, in writing, that the rental unit is equipped with a functional smoke detector. Neither the landlord nor the tenant may waive this requirement.
All Indiana state mandates are addressed through the Lease Builder. In addition, this document also meets lease requirements for the city of Indianapolis. There is also a wide variety of optional addenda, disclosures and practical forms for convenience that may be included with this lease. Indiana's laws are complex. Rely on our Lease Builder to simplify the process.
