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.

The landlord or tenant may terminate a lease by giving advance written notice as follows:

Month to Month: Requires a 30 day notice
Fixed Term: Requires notice as specified within the lease or the lease simply terminates at the end of the rental agreement
The security deposit may not exceed an amount greater than 1 month's rent.
Please Note: If a pet deposit is required, an additional amount not to exceed one-quarter of one month’s rent may be collected.
