Mississippi Lease Agreement Guarantee Seal

Mississippi's landlords can manage their rentals easily with this state specific rental agreement package. Along with the basic contract, unlimited addenda may be included to stipulate exactly what is expected from tenants.

The basic language is guaranteed to meet the Mississippi Landlord-tenant laws and is written explicitly to minimize owner risk in the event of litigation. However, the agreement also allows extensive customization.

The seven-step Lease Builder Wizard program guides the user in completing fields for names, addresses and other terms. In cases where a state law must be applied, Green text boxes labeled “Mississippi Assist” give specific guidelines. For example, in the Rules and Regulations section, the Assist explains that, if a landlord wants to require tenants to obtain rental insurance, this is permitted under state law.

This professional, legal document saves hours of document preparation time, because the rental address, and tenant and landlord names, must only be entered once. In subsequent steps, the Lease Builder automatically fills in those saved details.
