The Idaho month-to-month lease agreement is a residential rental contract enabling landlords to rent property to tenants on a monthly basis. It is not a fixed-lease like a standard residential rental agreement; instead, a month-to-month contract renews every month. This arrangement continues until either party wishes to end it, at which point they would notify the other party one (1) month prior to the intended terminating date. The terminating party does not have to give the other party any reason for ending the agreement.
While a month-to-month agreement is usually used for a temporary tenancy, the tenant is still bound by the same terms and conditions that are contained in most other lease agreements. They must pay rent on time, keep the premises clean, make any repairs (aside from regular wear and tear), and abide by all other rules made by the landlord and State law.
Notice for terminating – One (1) month (§ 55-208)
