Where can I find a good, standard lease to use with first tenant?

This is probably a dumb question, but where would everyone suggest I find a good, standard residential lease to use for tenants? I'm hoping to have my first rental property filled soon and I still don't have a solid lease for us to sign. There seem to be a few resources online but it's hard to tell which are reliable. Any suggestions?


Not a dumb question at all.  I am going through the same process of searching for a residential lease, with little success.  Going to follow this post in hopes of some direction.  

Your local apartment association or a really good tip is  call the courthouse in your town ask them what main attorney is on the paperwork of most of the counties evictions . Once you get his name call his office and buy  his lease
