The South Carolina month-to-month lease agreement is a contract that sets forth the terms by which a tenant is permitted to rent a landlord’s residential property on a monthly basis. Unlike a standard lease, the landlord and tenant can terminate a month-to-month contract without cause by giving the other party thirty (30) days’ notice. The agreement is renewed each month when the tenant pays rent, and the cycle continues until either party gives the other a written notice of termination. Before approving a monthly tenant, it is recommended that landlords have them complete a rental application and credit check to verify their identity and trustworthiness.
