The Utah month-to-month lease agreement is a rental contract that landlords use to sign on periodic tenants and grant them temporary occupancy of their property in exchange for monthly rent payments. Many tenants are financially unable to commit to an annual lease, and a month-to-month arrangement allows them to acquire a residence without the contractual obligation to pay rent for a whole year.
The contract should include the date that the agreement becomes effective, the cost of rent, and any additional fees, deposits, and expenses that the tenant will be required to pay. Once both parties have signed the lease, it becomes legally binding until the landlord or tenant cancels it with at least fifteen (15) days’ notice to the other party.
Notice for terminating – Fifteen (15) days (§ 78B-6-802(b)(i))
