South Dakota Roommate Agreement Template – PDF – Word
The South Dakota Roommate Agreement documents the basic rules and promises roommates consent to abiding by when sharing a living space. Such an action is always recommended regardless of whether the roommates are students in a dorm room or retirees seeking to save some money. There will be several key components in this document dealing with the specifics of the Rental Period, Rent, Utilities, Securities, Day-to-Day Household Responsibilities, and Personal Property/Storage the roommates have discussed and agreed to. By documenting these items, the concerned roommates will enjoy the benefit of having a signed agreement from each person stating the intent to follow the rules and uphold their responsibilities. This serves as a precautionary measure against any disagreements caused by confusion or oversight.
This form should be filled out carefully according to the discussion that led to the final agreement as this is, essentially, a signed contract. While this contract form will not hold the Landlord responsible to any roommates left out of the Master Lease, it will serve to address issues that are typically not found on the residential leases Landlords/Property Owners sign with Master Tenants. After this paperwork has been signed, it should be dispensed to all the signature parties and a copy should be kept to supply the Landlord upon request.
