New Mexico month-to-month lease agreement is a contract between a landlord and tenant that establishes terms for the renting of residential real estate on a monthly basis. A month-to-month lease has no fixed term and renews automatically unless sufficient notice is given. To terminate the agreement, either the landlord or tenant must deliver a termination notice to the other at least thirty (30) days in advance of the periodic rental date. Unlike a standard lease, neither party is obligated to explain their reason for termination. The flexibility afforded in a monthly lease favors temporary employees, students, and other individuals who may need to vacate on short notice.
