Rhode Island Rental Lease Agreement Forms and Templates

The Rhode Island rental forms enable a person to legally occupy property for a specific period of time. The most common term is twelve (12) months but this may vary depending on the type of arrangement agreed upon by the parties. A landlord may want to view the tenant’s credit and history of renting property from other landlords to ensure that the space leased will be in fair condition at the time of move out and that monthly payments will be made on time. This can be accomplished by having the tenant fill in a rental application.
