Rhode Island Rental Lease Agreement Forms and Templates


The Rhode Island rental forms allow a person to be able to legally occupy property from a landlord for a period of time. The most common term is twelve (12) months but may be any type of arrangement as 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 space leased will be in fair condition at the time of move out and that the monthly payments will be made on time. This can be accomplished by having the tenant fill in a rental application.

– The Security Deposit must be returned to the tenant within twenty (20) days of lease termination.
– The landlord must provide at least forty eight (48) hours notice before entering the tenant’s space for any non-emergency access.
