Additional Resources for Landlords

After signing the agreement, there may be other forms you will need as a landlord managing a series of tenancies. To save you drafting time, SampleForms.com stocks templates for the following contracts as well, so be sure to check them out:

  • House Lease Contracts. You can use these contracts when you want to rent out a residential building or a whole house instead of just one apartment unit or one room.
  • Extension Forms (Lease Renewal Forms). This is for situations when you want to extend a fixed-term contract before the lease expires. Since most rental contracts have a fixed term or are fixed-term contracts, these forms are going to come in handy. You may also see our Sample Month-to-Month Rental Agreement Forms to offer your tenants a more flexible contract.
  • Eviction Letters and Notices. You will need these for practical and legal reasons when you are to evict a tenant who is in violation of the terms and conditions of a rental agreement.
