The Nebraska Standard One (1) Year Lease Agreement is the most common kind of long term Residential Lease. Unlike shorter term leases, such as the Month to Month Lease, the One Year Lease will for the full year specified in the lease and cannot be ended or altered during that time unless the lease is violated or a provision within the lease allows for an alteration.
While this kind of lease obviously lacks the flexibility of a Month to Month Lease, it does protect the landlord from a tenant leaving suddenly and the tenant from their residency being ended without cause. For this reason it is popular among more stable tenants who are sure that they will be remaining in the area for an extended period of time. A landlord will typically require that a tenant complete the Rental Application Form before signing this kind of length.
As it is the most basic form a long term Residential Lease, a One Year Lease is subjected to all of the same laws and restrictions as any other Residential Lease. All of Nebraska’s lease laws can be found in Nebraska Revised Statutes, Title 76-1401 to 76-1449.
- A Nebraska landlord is required to disclose the name and address of the property owner, manager and any person authorized to act on their behalf with regards to the property.
