Vermont Roommate Agreement Template – PDF – Word
The Vermont Roommate Agreement is a written acknowledgment (developed for roommates) which will verify their consent to the living arrangement described within it. The intent of such an agreement should be to clearly define all the rules required to live in the rental property as required by the roommates as a whole. That is, within the boundaries of the Master Lease, this is a group activity and should be discussed as a group. Once an accurate representation of the house rules (i.e. cleaning, storage, personal property, house guests) and the basic lease terms have been entered onto this document, each roommate should provide his or her signature to validate the agreement.
This form is easily utilized and can be re-used at a future date (as a template) making it ideal for university students or those starting out with their first place. It also remains relevant for more seasoned individuals who wish to document the terms of their living arrangements. Two important facts to keep in mind when completing this document is that all the information entered must be well within boundaries of the Master Lease applying to the situation and that only roommates signing this agreement may be considered bound by it.
