Ending and Renewing
Periodic Lease: A notice of at least 15 days prior to the beginning of the next rental period is needed to end or renew the lease.
Fixed-Term Lease: There are no stated laws or regulations. Lease termination typically happens at the end of the Lease term unless otherwise stated in the Lease.
There is no limit placed on the security deposit charged to the Tenant so long as it is reasonable.
Returned Payment Fee
No more than a $20 service charge may be charged for a returned payment.
Landlords may require Tenants to obtain rental insurance.
Notice to Enter
Landlords must provide at least 24 hours notice before entering a rental unit.
Non-refundable deposit - Written Notice Required: If there is a written agreement and if any part of the deposit is to be made non-refundable, it must be so stated in writing to the renter at the time the deposit is taken by the owner or designated agent.
Contact your local housing or zoning office to be sure your rental property complies with city and county requirements for inspections, rent control, occupancy limits, property codes, and zoning. Many cities and counties require inspections and registrations and have specific maintenance regulations.
Don’t worry, all Utah-required disclosures are AUTOMATICALLY included in our Lease Agreement!
- Lead-Based Paint Disclosure: Pursuant to federal law, if the rental property was built before 1978, occupants must be provided with a lead-based paint disclosure.
- Move-In Checklist: Prior to the signing of the Lease Agreement, the Landlord must provide the Tenant with a checklist of the current condition of the rental unit. The Tenant then is allowed a reasonable time period to conduct their own inspection and report back to the Landlord. The Tenant may request a walk-through with the Landlord to discuss the condition of the property.

Frequently Asked Questions
Does a Lease Agreement need to be notarized in Utah?
No, Lease Agreements do not need to be notarized in Utah. As long as it meets the legal requirements of a Lease Agreement and is signed by both parties, it’s considered legally binding and fully enforceable.
What is the standard Lease term in Utah?
The standard Lease term in Utah is one year (12 months). However, the term can be shorter or longer if it’s clearly stated in the Lease Agreement. We offer short-term Lease Agreements, Month-to-Month Lease Agreements, and Vacation Rental Contracts to meet every Landlord’s needs.
Who needs a Lease Agreement?
Anyone who rents real estate needs a Lease Agreement. This is true whether it’s for one week or one year. This is true whether you’re renting an apartment, condo, duplex, or single-family home.
The Lease Agreement is what protects Landlords if problems arise, so it’s essential to have a Lease in place before handing over possession of your rental unit. While a simple, generic Lease Agreement is better than nothing, these basic, fillable Lease forms won’t provide Landlords with complete protection.
Instead, the Landlord, or lessor, should use a customizable Lease Agreement that covers all terms of the rental relationship.
Can I write my own Lease Agreement in Utah?
Yes, you can draft your own Lease Agreement. However, unless you’re familiar with Utah Lease Laws and have experience drafting Leases, it’s not a good idea to do so. Your Lease needs to comply with all Utah Landlord-Tenant laws and Lease requirements. Plus, it needs to cover all terms of your rental relationship. This is not easy to do!
Blank Lease forms, like the one offered by the Utah Association of Realtors, are one way for Landlords to access a state-specific Lease. But these can’t be customized to meet each Landlord’s needs.
You have a lot invested in your rental property and you need to make sure you protect that investment. Having a customizable, state-specific Lease is one of the best ways to do this.
How should I store my Utah Lease Agreement?
It’s important to securely store your signed Lease Agreements and to ensure that they’re easily accessible. We offer a few EZ ways to do this. Once your Lease is signed, it’s automatically stored securely on the cloud with our ezCloudStorage.
In addition, it’s EZ to print or download as a PDF.
Whether you prefer a hard copy or cloud storage, there are plenty of ways to make sure your Lease is safe and accessible.
