A Mississippi Rental Lease Agreement allows Landlords and Tenants to negotiate the terms for the use of residential or commercial properties. Typically, the tenant will view the property and submit an application if interested. If approved, both parties will sign the lease agreement. The tenant can take possession of the property on the first day of the lease term, unless a different date is agreed upon by both parties.
