Maryland Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

A Maryland month-to-month lease agreement is used to define the rental conditions by which a tenant leases residential property from a landlord on a monthly basis. Unlike a yearly lease, a month-to-month agreement has no pre-established termination date. This means is that the lease will extend for an additional month and shall do so perpetually until either the landlord or tenant decides to end the agreement. To terminate the arrangement, either party must provide the other with one (1) month’s notice before the intended vacancy date.

Notice for terminating (§ 8–402) – One (1) Month
