Arizona Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

An Arizona month-to-month lease agreement is a contract executed by a landlord and a tenant to establish a periodic rental arrangement that renews monthly. Many of the terms and conditions contained in this agreement are also found in standard lease agreements and other rental contracts. By signing the document, the tenant agrees to maintain the premises, pay rent on time, obey the landlord’s rules, and adhere to all rental laws of the state of Arizona. The main difference between a month-to-month lease and a standard lease is that the month-to-month renews each month and continues in perpetuity while the standard lease is a fixed-term lease. Either party can end the rental arrangement without cause as long as they provide the other party at least thirty (30) days’ notice.

Notice For Terminating – Thirty (30) days (§ 33-1375(b))

9) Utility Charges

The landlord may charge separately for gas, water, wastewater, solid waste removal, or electricity with a submetering system or a ratio utility system. If this is the case, the rental agreement should specify which utilities are charged and disclose any applicable administration fees.
