New York Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

The New York month-to-month lease agreement is a contract that authorizes a tenant to rent residential property for one (1) month at a time. A month-to-month lease renews automatically at the end of each month and will do so perpetually unless terminated by either the landlord or tenant. To end the lease, the terminating party must provide the other with one (1) month’s notice, or thirty (30) days’ notice if the unit is located in New York City. Neither the tenant nor the landlord needs to provide a reason for termination. The flexible nature of this arrangement allows landlords to modify lease terms and increase the rent easily.

Notice for Terminating (§ 232-A & § 232-B) – Thirty (30) days in New York City; one (1) month everywhere else.
