  4. Month-to-Month

An Iowa month-to-month lease agreement is executed by a landlord of residential property and their tenant to enter into a rental arrangement with no specified end date. This type of periodic lease is commonly applied after a fixed-term lease has ended and the parties wish to continue the lease without committing to another full year. The tenant’s duties and responsibilities as they pertain to the rental unit are no different from those governed by a one-year lease agreement. Either party can end a month-to-month agreement as long as they provide proper notice.

Notice for terminating (§ 562A.34(2)) – Thirty (30) Days
