A Kansas month-to-month lease agreement is used by landlords to rent residential property to tenants on a more temporary basis while charging monthly rent. Since it is not a fixed-term lease, either party has the authority to terminate the agreement without cause by giving the other party thirty (30) days’ notice. A month-to-month agreement is often established at the end of a standard 1-year lease to extend the rental arrangement while maintaining flexibility for both landlord and tenant. Even though this is often a transitory lease, the tenant is still responsible for the condition of the premises and the payment of the security deposit, rent, and utilities.
