The Indiana residential lease agreement is delegated for a landlord and tenant seeking a long-term rental arrangement usually lasting one (1) year. Before the landlord writes an agreement, they will usually check the credit and verify their income through a rental application. This form must be filled-in by the potential tenant along with the option of charging a fee and submitted to the landlord. The landlord should not take more than 2 to 3 days before giving an answer. Upon the approval of the tenant by the landlord, a lease will be written and ready for signature. At this time the tenant should have their Security Deposit ready and the landlord will issue keys for access.
