How To Make a Month-To-Month Rental Agreement the Easy Way
A month-to-month rental agreement is often used to automatically extend a lease for 30 days unless tenants or landlords give notice of nonrenewal. If you are looking for simple ways to create a month-to-month rental agreement, DoNotPay will jump in to help you make one with no hassle!
Understanding the Month-To-Month Lease Agreement
You can choose to sign a month-to-month lease from the beginning or do it later—it all depends on the agreement between a landlord and a tenant. Once you sign it, the lease will continue until one party decides to give a 30 days notice.
This type of lease agreement is a great option if you are an owner and you are not certain how long you would like your property to be rented for. The flexibility and having an option to end the lease at any time can prove quite handy for both tenants and landlords.
