Missouri Rental Lease Agreements

Missouri lease agreements are contracts between landlords and individuals interested in renting space on their property. Rental leases cover the terms of payment, the duration of the contract, and the various rules that the tenant must agree to. In many cases, lessors will demand that potential lessees undergo an application to determine their creditworthiness. Once both parties have signed the lease and the required payments (first (1st) month’s rent/safety deposit) have been made, the tenant will be granted access to the property.
