North Dakota Lease Agreement Guarantee Seal

This rental agreement may be used as a professional, legal contract. It fully complies with the North Dakota laws that govern the landlord and tenant relationship by automatically including all terms that state codes require.

This document is prepared in our Lease Builder Wizard program, which moves the user through seven easy steps. In most cases, agreement terms are inserted by selecting from multiple choice lists. There are also options to add your own unique text.

The Lease Builder guides you in making the proper legal selection when there is more than one option for applying a term. This guidance is supplied in the form of green-shaded North Dakota Assist text boxes, which appear throughout the lease. For instance, in setting security deposit amounts, you will see an Assist that explains the maximum allowable charge for a deposit, as well as the landlord’s obligation to place deposit money in an interest-bearing account.

Along with required legal language, there are many easy options to customize this lease. The landlord may check boxes for optional rules, and may attach unlimited addenda to address more complex regulations.

North Dakota State Laws

Category State Law
Ending and Renewing
North Dakota Law
Landlords may not enforce an automatic renewal clause in a residential lease without giving the tenant at least a 30-day written notice prior to the end of the current lease period. Notice may be delivered personally or by first-class mail. If such notice is not given by the landlord, the lease will convert to a month-to-month tenancy.

Please Note: In order to remain in compliance with state regulations, please review the information above BEFORE choosing the automatic renewal selection.

Month-to-Month: If there is no provision in the month-to-month periodic lease stating how much advance notice must be given to end the lease (written or verbal), either party may terminate the lease by giving at least 30 days written notice at any time. 47-16-15

Fixed Term: Terminates automatically at the end of the lease period without the need of any notice from either landlord or tenant, unless otherwise specified within the lease.
