The Idaho lease agreements are between a tenant seeking commercial or residential space in exchange for payment to a landlord on a monthly basis. The most common type of lease is the one (1) year residential lease agreement which can be filled in by the landlord and tenant typically after the approval through a verified rental application. After all security deposits are made, and both parties have signed the agreement will the tenant be given entry to the premises with all necessary keys will be issued.

There is no cap. The landlord may ask for as much as they deem necessary.
Returning Security Deposit
The landlord must give back the Security Deposit to the tenant within twenty-one (21) days. If written in the lease agreement, the landlord may not have to send the deposit up to thirty (30) days.
Landlord’s Access to Rental Property
There is no State law on how much time is necessary for the landlord to give before entering the property. This should not be abused by the landlord and it is recommended that at least twenty-four (24) hours always be given to the tenant.
Rent is due on the date specified in the lease agreement which is most commonly the first (1st) of every month. If rent is not paid on that date, the landlord may start the eviction process and charge the late fee stated in the rental contract (if no late fee is stated in the rental agreement then it cannot be issued).
If the tenant receives a three (3) day notice to quit, this means that they will have three (3) days to either pay all rent due, including any back-rent or fees, or vacate the premises. If they decide to vacate, the rent is still due to the landlord.
