Property Viewing and Key Agreement

The form below is a very basic one. Chances are you will need something more comprehensive. 



With the signature below, I hereby acknowledge receipt of the keys to the dwelling located at: _____________________________________________________.

I intend to use the keys for the purpose of viewing the dwelling to decide if it is suitable for me to rent, and I will not disturb or remove anything found there. As a courtesy, I will report to the owner/manager anything that appears to be amiss at the dwelling.

I have given the owner/manager, whose acknowledgment appears below, a deposit of ___________, which will be returned to me when I return the keys.

I promise to return the keys by _______ (a.m.) (p.m.) today to the owner/manager at the same place where I picked them up. Should I fail to do so, the owner/manager is entitled to keep the deposit to pay for changing the locks on the dwelling.

I understand that this agreement gives me no occupancy rights whatsoever and that I must complete a rental application if I want to be considered as an applicant to rent this dwelling.
