Delaware Rental Lease Agreement Templates

The Delaware rental forms are a tool for landlords to signup and hold a tenant bound to an agreement for the usage of commercial or residential property for monthly payments. The landlord will want to verify the tenant’s credentials with the rental application to make sure that they are reliable to make payment every month by viewing their credit report and monthly income. Once the agreement is signed by both parties it is enforceable and once the Security Deposit (if any) has cleared access to the property, such has keys, will be handed to the tenant.

Rent is due on the date written in the lease agreement. Although, the landlord may start the eviction process immediately after it is late but cannot begin to charge a late penalty until it has been five (5) days late. The late fee cannot be more than five (5%) of the total monthly rent amount.

*If the rent is late, the landlord has the right to begin the eviction process by notifying you through the five (5) day notice to quit form. This allows the tenant to either pay the rent, including any past payment(s), within the time-frame given or vacate the property.
