All the lease templates are under “Dashboard”. Make sure you use the lease template that corresponds to that unit. If it is a new house then you need to make a copy of one of the leases that we have in Rocketlawyer to create the new template for the new property.

Use Rocketlawyer to request e-signatures from the guest(s) and Julie. Make all signatures, dates, and initials fields.

Tenant needs to initial these sections on the lease: Deposit, Pets (only if tenant is bringing pet(s), Other Fees, Late Fees, sections “c” & “d” on the Residential Lease Disclosure page and Julie needs to initial section “e” on that page.  Each lease requires two signatures and dates per adult guest and also two from Julie
