A South Carolina room rental agreement is a formal document that outlines the agreement between the main tenant and other roommates in a jointly rented property. It details the financial obligations and duties of each roommate. Every roommate is required to read and consent to the terms of the contract thoroughly. The agreement becomes valid once all roommates have signed it, indicating their acceptance of its terms.
After How Long Does a Guest Become a Tenant in South Carolina?
It’s common in many jurisdictions for a guest to be considered a tenant if they stay for an extended period, typically ranging from 14 to 30 days, and if they exhibit behaviors consistent with tenancy, such as receiving mail at the address, paying for utilities or rent, or bringing in furniture.
However, the South Carolina Residential Landlord and Tenant Act did not specify a statute. Therefore, this remains a general guideline rather than a legally defined timeframe.
