How Do I Make A Legal Roommate Agreement?

What does a roommate agreement look like?

A written roommate agreement is a contract created and signed by you and your roommates (no need to get the landlord involved) before or when you move in together. It should establish house rules like quiet hours, division of household duties, a cleaning schedule, how you'll handle overnight guests, and more.
