Monthly Rental lease Agreement (§  78B-6-802) – This is a relatively straightforward document that allows the lease to be terminated by the lessor or lessee without cause. The only stipulation is that there needs to be at least fifteen days' notice of termination.

Standard Residential Rental Contract– A common residential rental agreement that has a fixed lease term. It’s widely used in the state and protects the tenant more than other types of agreements.
