Many cities and counties require inspections and registrations and have specific maintenance regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do Leases in Oklahoma need to be notarized?
No, Oklahoma Lease Agreements do not need to be notarized. The parties can choose to notarize the Rental Contract if they want to, but it’s not required. As long as the Lease is signed by the Landlord, or lessor, and the Tenant, or lessee, it’s considered legally binding and fully enforceable.
Can I draw up my own tenancy agreement?
Yes, anyone can write a tenancy agreement. However, if you do, it’s important to make sure that it complies with all state and federal laws. In addition, it needs to cover all terms of the rental relationship. Even a basic and simple Lease Agreement can be challenging to draft if you’re not experienced with the applicable laws and terms.
If you’re not familiar with your state’s Lease laws, drafting a Lease Agreement can be risky. There are standard Lease Agreements available online. While these blank, fillable Lease forms are better than nothing, they still can leave Landlords without the protection they need. Plus, generic Lease Agreements, like the one offered by the Oklahoma Association of Realtors, don’t allow Landlords to customize their Lease or create a full Lease Package.
The Lease is the most important document that Landlords use, and you want it to protect you should your renters break the Lease or damage your property. Because of that, it’s always a good idea to use a state-specific, customizable Lease Agreement that covers ALL terms of the rental relationship.
What is the standard Lease term in Oklahoma?
The standard Lease term is one year (12 months). However, shorter and longer tenancies are recognized as long as the term is clearly stated in the Lease Agreement. To help meet every Landlord’s needs, we have Lease Agreements of different lengths, including a Month-to-Month Lease, Vacation Rental Contract, and a Short-Term Lease Agreement.
How should I store my Oklahoma Lease Agreement?
There are lots of ways your Lease can be stored. Once it’s completed, it’s automatically stored securely in the cloud using our ezCloudStorage. In addition, it’s EZ to print or download as a PDF. Whether you prefer electronic storage or storing a hard copy, it’s important to make sure that your Lease is accessible and secure.
Who needs a Lease Agreement?
Anyone who rents real estate needs a Lease Agreement in place before handing over possession of their property. This is true whether it’s an apartment, duplex, single-family home, or condo.
The Lease is what protects the Landlord if Tenants violate rental terms, damage the property, or don’t pay rent. Because of this, it’s vital to always have a good Lease Agreement in place.
