A month-to-month lease addendum is added to a lease agreement with a fixed term to change it to a month-to-month tenancy. It outlines the new terms and changes to the original lease, such as an increase in rent and how much notice is required to end the tenancy. The addendum is useful for landlords looking to extend a good tenancy, or those looking for the flexibility to cancel at-will.

Month-to-Month Addendum vs. Lease Extension

While month-to-month and lease extension addendums allow tenants to continue renting past the original lease termination date, there are differences between the two that should be considered before choosing.


  • Provides tenants flexibility as they can rent indefinitely
  • Allows landlords to charge higher rent as tenants are provided the convenience of a low-commitment tenancy
  • Can be terminated by the tenant or landlord without cause

Lease Extension

  • Generally keeps the same terms and rent as the original lease, except for the termination date
  • Ensures that the tenancy will continue for a fixed period (usually six (6) or twelve (12) months)

Frequently Asked Questions

Can a landlord raise the rent on a month-to-month addendum?

Yes. In most cases, landlords may increase a tenant’s rent when switching to a monthly rental term, provided the rent increase complies with the state and city’s rent increase laws and sufficient notice is provided (between 30 and 60 days for most states).

Can a landlord terminate a month-to-month addendum without cause?

Yes. Generally, a month-to-month tenancy may be terminated by written notice by either party. The amount of notice required may be specified in the addendum, though it must comply with the state’s required notice periods.
