Connecticut Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

A Connecticut month-to-month lease agreement establishes a legally binding relationship between a landlord and a tenant renting residential property on a temporary basis. This rental contract differs from a standard residential lease agreement in that the term of the lease renews on a monthly basis instead of annually. This shortened term enables the landlord to maintain flexibility in renting their property, and allows them to terminate the lease without cause.  A month-to-month agreement is commonly used when the landlord and tenant wish to continue the rental arrangement after the expiration of a standard lease term, but don’t intend on renewing for the full year.

Notice For Terminating – Three (3) days (§ 47a-23(a))
