Landlord Tenant Legal Documents


Many years ago a committee of local landlords, students and representatives of the Associated Students of the University of Wyoming (ASUW) met for the purpose of drafting a lease that could be recognized by students and used by local landlords as a rental agreement that was fair to both landlord and tenant. This committee met for more than one year and drafted and approved a lease known as the ASUW Approved Lease Rental Agreement.

There are many things tenants need to keep in mind prior to signing a lease, during the duration of the lease, and upon termination of the lease. The checklist linked below contains reminders about things tenants should do during each phase of a lease agreement. Feel free to print off the linked list to have on hand during each phase of your lease. The items listed do not represent an exhaustive list of things that tenants should do during the lease. You can add or remove items from this list to fit your unique situation. 

Tenant Checklist


Issues arise when people live together. A roommate agreement is a way to set rules and protect all involved. A roommate agreement can help resolve any issues that might arise during the term of the lease. Roommate agreements can cover many things, including:

  • What will happen if one roommate breaks the lease early; 
  • Who is responsible for what portion of the rent; 
  • Who is responsible for the utilities; 
  • How to divide the damage deposit; 
  • Rules about parties, quiet hours, and overnight guests;
  • Apportionment of chores; 
  • Who is responsible for purchasing cleaning supplies. 

The sample agreements below are illustrative only. You should fully read the agreement and ensure it encapsulates your entire agreement and situation. Feel free to add more information or clauses than included in the sample agreements, or remove clauses that do not fit. You should seek the advice of an attorney you have any questions about the linked agreements or about creating your own.
