55-2005.  Rental agreement. (1) A written rental agreement or lease shall be executed in duplicate by the landlord and the prospective resident, each to receive a copy. The landlord shall provide a copy of the community rules when the prospective resident submits an application for residency and prior to the execution of the rental agreement. The provisions of this chapter shall apply to all such agreements and to all other rental agreements to the extent applicable as set forth in this chapter.
(2)  The requirement of subsection (1) of this section shall not apply if:
(a)  The community or part thereof has been acquired by eminent domain or condemnation for a public works project; or
(b)  An employer-employee relationship exists between a landlord and resident.
(3)  The provisions of this section shall apply to any tenancy in existence on the effective date of this act, but only after expiration of the term of any oral or written rental agreement governing such tenancy, not to exceed twelve (12) months from the date of enactment of this section. Existing contracts may be perpetuated by agreement of both parties. If a resident fails to sign and return to the landlord, who has acted in good faith, any new or amended rental agreement following the written notice provided in accordance with the provisions of section 55-2006, Idaho Code, and the resident continues to hold the premises after the expiration of the notice period, then the notice shall of itself operate and be effectual to create and establish, as part of the rental agreement, the terms, rent, conditions and rules specified in the notice.
