Residential Leases

Wyoming has clear statutes regarding rental property, which means there are numerous legal implications for both property owners and for tenants.

Landlords

Many of the “form” leases available online are imperfect and do not always meet a landlord’s needs.  There is no such thing as a “standard” form lease.  Oftentimes a form lease may yield worse results than not even having a lease.

As a landlord you should have a fair and reasonable lease that is in conformity with Wyoming Statutes and city municipal code.  A basic form lease rarely includes the necessary language for federal, state, and local laws.  Furthermore, laws frequently change and it is important to ensure that any lease you are using conforms with current laws.

Whether you are a landlord who is new to renting property or you have been renting property for a long time, you should consult an experienced lawyer to ensure your leases are up to date.  There are other issues we also may address for your rental property such as:

  • Tenant eviction
  • Security Deposit retention
  • Lease drafting and review
  • Landlord consulting
  • Commercial leases
  • Landlord/Tenant issues

Tenants

Tenants have rights as renters. Some towns in Wyoming, such as Laramie, have a significant number of rental properties. If you are a tenant it is important to know the terms of your lease. A knowledgeable lawyer can help explain those terms.  Not understanding the details of a rental agreement may lead to an eviction of your rental property and/or loss of deposit.  Contact our lawyers today to set up an appointment to discuss your lease and any other legal concerns you may have.
