Mississippi Rental Lease Agreements

Mississippi rental agreements allow a landlord (“Lessor”) and a tenant (“Lessee”) to come together in a real estate contract. The lessee agrees to rent the premises stated for monthly payments negotiated in the contract along with other standard terms and conditions. Landlords will often screen potential tenants by demanding that they undergo a credit application to measure their ability to pay rent. Once the agreement has been signed by both parties, it becomes legally binding.
