KTS Residential Lease

California property owners and managers can reduce risk from tenant disputes by using a well-crafted lease form, and ensuring that the lease form is up-to-date. The goal of simplicity must be balanced against the competing goal of including enough detail in the lease to clearly allocate the parties’ rights and responsibilities in many different areas.

The Kimball, Tirey & St. John LLP Residential Lease has been drafted with these competing concerns in mind.

The lease contains a great deal of detail, but is easy to read and understand and is currently being used in over 230,000 units. It contains checkboxes and fill-in-the blanks areas which allow owners and managers to customize the lease to fit many different situations.

The following addenda are incorporated into the Kimball, Tirey & St. John LLP lease form:

AB 1482 Mold
Appliance Pest control notice
Asbestos addendum Pet
Bed bug addendum Pool/spa rules
Community rules and policies Renter’s insurance
