Indiana Month to Month Rental Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Indiana Month to Month Rental Agreement Template gives landlords and tenants a structure to describe the agreement pertaining to the property rental contract they wish to enter. A month to month is a unique type of lease in that where it has a start date, it does not have a termination date. That is, the termination of this agreement will depend upon either or both party’s willingness to continue with the living arrangement rather than a specific period of time predefined by the lease they have signed. This can afford quite a bit of freedom while still affording the protection of the law regarding the landlord and tenant role.

There is the potential for a sudden loss of income for a landlord or the sudden loss of a home for a tenant, however, Indiana has placed a safeguard to aid both parties with such transitions (Indiana State Code Article 31 Landlord-Tenant Relations). That is, there is a state mandated requirement stating that this type of lease may only be terminated if thirty days’ notice has been issued to the remaining party. In this way, the recipient of such a notice may take the precautions necessary to avoid undue hardship by finding a replacement for the party terminating the lease.

Minimum Termination Period – 30 days

Laws – § 32-31-1-1
