2016 Iowa Residential Lease now Available
(Latest shipping version - 3.5 revised May 15, 2016) 

Our Premium Residential Lease is available for Members (10 Copies - $29.95 or 5 Copies - $19.95), and for Non-Members at $254.95 for 10 (P&H charges included).  This is our "Best-in Class in Iowa" Lease.    
NOTE: This is NOT a lease that socks it to the tenant but a fair and balanced lease which we are confident will stand up in court.  It should not draw lawsuits, nor the ire of the opposing counsel, nor the angst of a Magistrate because of an egregious stretch by management to  beyond what Iowa Code 562A allows.   We are, however, as aggresive at protecting YOUR rights as a investor as we can be, while still keeping prohibited provisions out of your lease. 

IaREIA-ILA originally commissioned Mark V. Hanson, Hanson Law, P.C., for creation of this lease in 2012.   Since then, we have added several significant updates:  
  1. To comply with Legislative changes to I.C. 562A that were effective July 1, 2013. 
  2. To add a clause for Severability (termed "Unenforceable Provisions"),
  3. An entirely new rewrite of the section regarding Abandoned Property,
  4. Enhancements to the Habitability clause, and
  5. To remove a few clauses which may not have been defensible in court, due to recent rulings of the Iowa Supreme Court (May, 2016).
  6. Forms Task Force review, numerous times.   
 The lease you will receive is our latest version.  We claim it is the "best-in class in Iowa" because no one has shown us a lease that is any better.   It has been vetted by Christopher Warnock, lead attorney for the Iowa Tenant's Project, as well. 

Should you use our lease and any provision of the lease causes you to lose in Court, we will indemnify your costs up to $1,000*.  This means if the judge rules in the opposing party's favor, as a direct result of using our IaREIA-ILA Lease, we will pay up to $1,000 of your court costs.  There are two pre-requisite's which must be proved prior to a claim being valid.

  1. *We must have on file a signed copy of the form "Members Agreement for Use of Association Forms", and
  2. The user must be an active member, with dues current (just like any other "insurer" would require).


We speedily ship either 10 or 5 copies, snail mailing them to your door.  

 Replacement policy (due to a change in the form or law) is for 2-years from date of purchase.  We replace your unused lease forms inventory whenever you place a new order.   Selection

Select the Add to Cart button above, then make your payment via credit card or your Paypal.com account.  The Processing & Handling fee is already included in your order.  All Leases used in Iowa must conform to I.C. 562.A  - The Iowa Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act - (IURLTA) to stand up in court.   You could expect to pay $1,000, or more, for such a lease, drawn by an attorney. We are making it available at a fraction of the cost, and the reason we charge is to help defer the expense of keeping our forms up to date.
