A Nevada lease agreement is written to allow a landlord and tenant to be able to come to terms over the use of a property. The contract usually outlines the monthly payment amount, the term of the lease, and any other conditions agreed upon by the parties. Once the document has been written and signed it becomes legally binding to both landlord and tenant.

Rental Application – Used by the landlord to check the credentials of a potential tenant to verify their employment and any references to understand their character. The landlord is allowed to charge a small fee for providing this measure.
