A Kentucky month-to-month lease agreement is signed by a landlord and their tenant and defines a rental arrangement between the parties that renews on a monthly basis. While tenants pay monthly rent under a standard one-year lease, the difference between the standard lease and a month-to-month lease is that the latter has no fixed term and restarts each month with the payment of the rent amount. The month-to-month arrangement allows the landlord to maintain flexibility and terminate the agreement at any point (as long as they give the tenant thirty (30) days’ notice). The tenant also has the right to terminate a month-to-month lease by providing the same notice to the landlord.

Tenant screening – Kentucky Rental Application
The landlord is required to disclose the contact information of any managers and agents who have access to the property and can receive notices or issue demands.
If the rental property dates to 1978 or earlier, the tenant must be given notice that there may be lead-based paint in their unit and on the premises.
In any tenancy where the tenant pays a security deposit, the landlord must give them a written account of the property’s condition and allow the tenant to verify the landlord’s assessment.
Security deposits must be kept in bank accounts designed for that sole purpose with the account location and number provided to the tenant.
