Kentucky Rental Lease Agreement Templates

The Kentucky rental agreements permit a commercial or residential tenant to occupy space for a business or livable use. The tenant will be required to pay a monthly sum to the landlord and it is usually due on the first (1st). The standard procedure for the landlord is to screen the tenant of their credit and background history through the use of the rental application. This will allow the landlord to be able to make a decision, in the case of a commercial tenant the business’s background, and in the case of a residential tenant the credit report and references of the individual. Once approved a lease contract will be drafted and any lingering items will be negotiated and entered into the agreement.
