A Georgia month-to-month lease agreement establishes the legally binding relationship between a landlord and their tenant to whom they are renting a residential rental unit on a monthly basis. This type of arrangement is usually temporary, enabling either party to cancel the agreement for no particular reason (a notice period is required – see below).
A month-to-month lease is often introduced at the end of a standard 1-year residential lease to continue the rental arrangement on more impermanent grounds. This type of contract gives the landlord more flexibility, as they can terminate the lease more easily and use the space for themselves, increase the rent before the next tenant, or rent it out as a vacation rental.

Tenant Screening – Georgia Rental Application
Prior to signing the rental agreement, new tenants must be informed if the rental unit has flooded three (3) times or more in the previous five (5) years.
New tenants must be given the names and addresses of the owner of the property or anyone receiving demands or notices on their behalf, well as the names and addresses of anyone managing the premises.
If the property was constructed before 1978, this lead-based paint disclosure form must be provided to new tenants.
If the tenant pays a security deposit in advance, the landlord must fill out this form to report any pre-existing property damage.
Any security deposits collected by the landlord must be placed in an escrow account in a location that is disclosed to the tenant.
