Inclusion of Rental Lease

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I replied to ask this question on another thread before I realized it was "off topic" of the original thread, but couldn't delete my reply. Sorry for the "double post", so to speak.

I am in the process of assembling our i751 application and am ready to copy the leases. However, our rental leases are, respectively, 37 pages, 27 pages, and 25 pages to cover the last two years. I can't see that USCIS wants to wade through 80-ish pages of rental leases, so wondered what was important to send.

Should I send:

1. Just the top page of our lease, with our names, the apartment address, management info, etc., and nothing else.

2. The first section of the lease (3-4 pages) with all the little notations that require signature, leaving out all the addendums and add-on items (like key acceptance, pet agreements, etc.

3. The whole thing.

These are also on legal size paper. Not even sure how to scan that.

I have never heard this. Is there a precedent, or do you have a citation for it?

OP, if you have wills, medical powers of attorney, HIPAA releases, and similar documents, your need for anything like a many-page lease agreement will diminish.

The choice of what to include in the package is up to you. I've never heard of having to include nonessential material such as lease addenda. In fact, too many irrelevant enclosures might cloud the issue. If you include the lease agreement, do just the first few pages, like your #2.
