A South Carolina residential lease agreement form is a standard one (1) year lease agreement meant for any tenant seeking to rent property who would like to have a binding agreement with a property owner. The form is in a fill-in-the-blanks format, and after a landlord accepts the terms and conditions, both parties may sign and enter into an unalterable deal.
