Montana Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

Montana month-to-month lease agreement establishes an arrangement in which a landlord (the “lessor”) allows another party (the “lessee” or “tenant”) to occupy a residential space on a monthly basis. The terms of the agreement should define the occupancy date, monthly rent, security deposit, utility payments, and maintenance fees. A month-to-month lease is open ended, meaning that the tenancy can last as many months as the parties desire. The arrangement may be terminated for any reason by providing thirty (30) days’ notice to the non-terminating party. In the same manner, the landlord can increase the rent or modify the agreement terms.
