Nebraska Lease Agreement Guarantee Seal

The rental lease is the single most important document in setting the stage for successful management of rental properties. A thorough, professional contract is key in legally protecting both you and your property. This legal agreement meets Nebraska Landlord-tenant laws, and provides all necessary disclosures and addenda. In addition, this document meets lease requirements for the cities of Lincoln and Omaha.

Each section includes precise instructions for properly applying state law. These instructions are provided in green-shaded text boxes labeled Nebraska Assist. In the case of security deposit amounts, for instance, the Assist states that the deposit amount may not be greater than one month’s rent, unless a pet deposit is also being collected.

Tenants will be well-informed with this lease agreement, because the terms are clear, and the expectations are fully explained. Furthermore, each section may be customized to add rules that address any special circumstances at the rental. The seven-step Lease Builder Wizard program allows you to select terms from numerous provided options; it also provides blank fields for typing in your own terms.
