An Indiana month-to-month lease agreement is a short-term lease agreement executed by a landlord and tenant to establish the terms and conditions of a monthly residential rental arrangement. As long as the tenant continues to pay rent every month, the lease renews for another month in perpetuity until the tenant leaves or the landlord provides a notice to quit.

The landlord does not need to have cause to terminate a month-to-month lease, they simply have to notify the tenant of such termination one (1) month in advance. Indiana law does not specifically mention the tenant’s ability to terminate a month-to-month agreement, but it is customary to provide notice to the landlord before vacating the premises.
