Making a lease in TurboTenant is easy. We prefill any information we already have, and you fill in the rest of the details to customize your lease.
We've designed the process and the lease to be easy to use, flexible, and affordable.
If you want further customization in your lease, you can use the Provisions & Addendums section at the end of the design process to add or overwrite anything to the lease terms.
In the brief video below, we walk you through the whole lease agreement process in TurboTenant.
Creating Your Lease Agreement
Step 1 - Log into your account and go to your Leases tab
Step 2 - Add your lease details and profile to TurboTenant, then click Actions and Get a Lease Agreement or Get Started.
You can start your lease agreement from your Dashboard or your Forms tab as well.
You'll have the opportunity to create a new property and/or lease during the flow.
Step 3 - On the Lease Agreement Overview, you can learn more about the process and start to build your lease agreement.
Fill out each of the sections we have not automatically filled out to create your lease agreement.
Default language in the lease is not customizable or editable because our leases are designed by legal professionals.
You can still add language that overwrites or adds new provisions in the Provisions & Addendums section of the lease.
Below is an example of the “Lease Specifics” step, where information about the rental property and the lease dates is prefilled.
As you are filling out your lease agreement, you'll be able to preview the actual agreement that you're in the process of creating.
Step 4 - When you're done, read through the PDF preview of your lease agreement.
If you've found something you'd like to change, you can go in and make adjustments to whichever section you like prior to finalizing.
Step 5 - Purchase the completed lease agreement.
You can purchase it for $39, or sign up for the Premium Plan to get unlimited lease agreements in select states. You're also purchasing e-signatures, which is the next step of the process.
If you choose to skip the e-signature portion, we store your completed lease agreement on the lease that it is associated with. From there, you can download the document to print, or send it out electronically to get signed.
Step 6 - Click the Request E-Signature button.
Here, you’ll have the another opportunity to add any attachments to the lease agreement, which will show up as addendums.

Step 7 - Electronic signature prompts are automatically placed within the lease agreement for the parties that need to sign.
These prompts are the places a tenant's or a landlord's signature is required.
If you've uploaded addendums, you must place signature prompts on those fields as well, so that the tenant can sign there.
Step 9 - Click the Continue button in the upper right of the signature prompt.
We will then begin the email notification process with your tenant.
The rest of the process is very similar to the standard E-Sign process within TurboTenant.
Once all parties have signed, the signed copy of the lease agreement will be stored electronically in your TurboTenant account, on the lease that is associated with the lease agreement..
You’ll be able to download a PDF of the signed document for your own records as well.
