A North Dakota month-to-month lease agreement is a legally binding contract whereby a tenant rents residential property from a landlord on a monthly basis. The lease has no fixed termination date and is renewed upon each of the tenant’s monthly rent payments. To terminate the agreement, the tenant must give the landlord at least one (1) month’s notice.
Tenants who need a place to live for a limited or undetermined period of time will often seek this type of arrangement with their landlord due to its flexibility. The disadvantages for tenants are that the landlord can alter the terms of their agreement, raise the rent, and terminate the lease with relatively short notice. The lease may specify a longer termination or amendment notice period than the minimum set by state statute.
