Kari,

This is our form which we got from a Florida Site. I can't remember exactly but they have all sorts of agreements and contracts. Mostly generic and then you add or delete stuff pertaining to you.

Below I copy and pasted ours. It might be outdated we did it in 2000, but should give you an idea.

We also do a lease agreement. We found that we can't evict non-payers, etc without a written lease agreement. I don't know if this would pertain to your state, or if its just because the barn is owned by a homeowner association and not just one person.
