Create a high quality document online now!

The Kansas Month to Month Lease Agreement Form is a useful contract tool which acts to solidify a rental agreement in writing. Once all the specifics of an agreement have been discussed and decided upon. This type of lease allows quite a few benefits to both parties. While each will enjoy the benefits afforded by the law and the lease itself to the roles they have been assigned, both parties will appreciate the security of knowing the other is bound by his/her legal signature on their original agreement.

A Month-to-Month rental agreement will define the landlord role and the tenant role by assigning one or the other to each signature party. It will also define the property, money owed, and termination/move-out procedure. This last definition is particularly vital as while this particular arrangement has a start date, it does not have an end date. That is, the rental arrangement exists at the will and discretion of both parties.

When it does come time to terminate the lease, it should be done in accordance with Kansas State Law (Chapter 58, Article 25). This will require that notice be given in a timely manner. This agreement will contain directions for its termination and both parties should be fully aware of and compliant with the detailed instructions within the lease.

Minimum Termination Period – 30 days

Laws – § 58-2570
