A New Mexico room rental agreement is a legal contract establishing the rules and guidelines for multiple tenants living on the same property. It lets the primary tenant rent a specific space within a property to a tenant and may grant the secondary tenants access to a shared space.
This document helps tenants maintain courteous relationships and lessens the complications that may arise from living together. It spells out rent payments, security deposits, utility obligations, maintenance/cleaning requirements, and other aspects of the living arrangement.
After How Long Does a Guest Become a Tenant in New Mexico?
New Mexico’s landlord-tenant laws (Chapter 47, Article 8) don’t explain the occupancy differences between a guest and a tenant. A landlord must make this distinction in the original lease agreement. If a dispute arises about a guest staying too long, the parties can refer to the landlord’s guidelines.
