Arizona Month to Month Rental Agreement Template

The Arizona Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is a lease contract that automatically renews on a monthly basis but may be canceled by either party with a month’s notice. This type of arrangement can be very useful to both lessor and lessee when unsure of the exact length of time the rental period should be in effect. While it is common for many to use a verbal month-to-month agreement, having a signed contract to preserve the rights of both a tenant and a landlord is a wise method to prevent any misunderstandings at a future date.

The benefit of this contract is that it will automatically renew at the end of every month while affording stability and freedom. This is achieved while providing an option for either to terminate the agreement when necessary. This contract will also require that thirty days’ notice is given prior the termination date. This will prevent the remaining party from being put in a financially awkward position (i.e. having to suddenly find a lessor/lessee replacement). Such a warning period gives the remaining party the opportunity to prepare for the termination. The automatic renewal and the notice requirement provide an excellent balance for all concerned while a written contract provides a reasonable level of security. Provided that both parties have agreed to the terms they have filled out, both can benefit from such an agreement.
