Wyoming Residential Lease Agreement Form – PDF Template
The Wyoming residential lease agreement allows a landlord (property owner) to enter into a binding contract with a tenant (lessee) for the use of property on a fixed term (most commonly one (1) year). The tenant will typically have to first be approved by the landlord and, when accepted, negotiations over the rental amount, utilities, and any other fees associated with the premises will begin.
Once the tenant and landlord authorize an agreement, the form is legally binding, and upon the required deposits being paid, access to the property be granted.
- If either party has any questions concerning their rights, they should review the Wyoming Residential Rental Laws.
Security Deposit Laws
Maximum Amount ($) – No limit for security deposits. Landlords may request any amount they desire.
Returning – The deposit must be returned within thirty (30) days after the end of the tenancy or within fifteen (15) days after the landlord is notified of the tenant’s new mailing address, whichever occurs later (§ 1-21-1208(a)).
Lead-Based Paint Disclosure – If the housing unit was built prior to 1978, the lead-based paint disclosure form must be signed by the tenant and attached to the contract.
Non-Refundable Fee Disclosure – Any non-refundable fee paid to the landlord must be disclosed in the rental agreement and a written notice of this fee must be given to the tenant when the deposit is made (§ 1-21-1207).
Rent Grace Period
Wyoming law provides no grace period statutes. Fees charged by the landlord for non-payment of rent should be reasonable and correspond with the actual damages incurred as a result of the late payment.
