An Indiana lease agreement is a contract between a landlord and tenant for the renting of commercial or residential property. The tenant will view the property and, if interested, will negotiate with the landlord. After a deal has been reached, the landlord will verify the tenant’s credit and income. Once approved, the landlord will devise a lease to be signed by both parties.
