Resident Lease Agreement

Recovery Housing Basics and Definitions > Resident Lease Agreement



Residents live in the home as any other family may occupy a home.  They are considered tenants under landlord tenant laws and have a lease agreement that contains financial information as well as other expectations for tenants in the recovery home.


Should a resident be asked to leave the home, the landlord must comply with Ohio Landlord Tenant Law and/or Ohio Eviction Law.


It is highly recommended that organizations offering recovery housing seek legal guidance from an attorney when crafting their resident lease agreements.
