Kentucky Month to Month Rental Agreement Form

Create a high quality document online now!

The Kentucky Month to Month Lease Agreement Template may be used anytime a landlord and a tenant have decided the terms of their property rental agreement will be at will as opposed to having a specific end-date. Such an arrangement may be ideal in quite a few circumstances. For instance, contractors on long-term assignment may benefit if the work they have in that area is seasonal or servicemen who wish to avoid too much paperwork if or when they are transferred may also prefer such an agreement.

However, such freedom also comes with a level of responsibility. This is logical enough, as the exchange of (typically) a significant sum of money for the right to maintain a residence has an obvious effect on one’s finances and security. Thus, while leaving this type of rental arrangement is perfectly fine, it should be done with a reasonable amount of notice to the remaining party. This is not only a consideration but also a requirement of the Kentucky Uniform Residential Landlord and Tenant Act (§ 383.695). Therefore, when one party terminates this agreement he/she must give at least thirty days’ full notice before doing so in order to be in compliance with Kentucky State Law.

Minimum Termination Period – 30 days

Laws – § 383.695

How to Write

Step 1 – The first three blank lines in this document will define the parties and time frame of the agreement. Enter the full name of the landlord and tenant in the first two spaces then the date of the agreement on the third.

Step 2 – In the section labeled “Premises,” report the street address of the property being rented in the first blank space then in the second report the name of the city where the property is located.

Step 3 – The “Lease Term” section will provide a blank space to enter the start date of the agreement.

Step 4 – The monthly rent should be reported in the “Lease Payments” paragraph. Write out the monthly rent amount on the first blank space and enter it as a number on the second blank line (in the parentheses). Then enter the numerical equivalent of the first month it is due and the first year it is due.

Step 5 – The “Late Charges” paragraph will need the last calendar day the rent may be paid and considered on time on the first blank line. On the second blank line of this paragraph enter the daily penalty accrued for nonpayment. Finally, on the third blank line enter the calendar day of the month where nonpayment of the rent results in a lease violation.

Step 6 – On the blank line in “Insufficient Funds,” enter the amount the tenant must pay for each check submitted as rent payment the bank denies for lack of funds.

Step 7 – Enter the dollar amount of the security required by the landlord in the “Security Deposit” paragraph.

Step 8 – In the “Defaults” section locate the blank line (after the words “Tenant shall have”) then enter the number of calendar days from the receipt of a notice the tenant shall be granted to correct a lease violation.

Step 9 – The next section to require information will be the “Occupants” section. Locate this section and enter the number of people who may reside with the lessee without prior approval from the landlord.

Step 10 – In the “Utilities and Services” section check off all the items a landlord will be responsible to pay for. If the landlord has agreed to pay for any utilities and/or services not previously mentioned, in this paragraph, report them on the blank line.

Step 11 – In the “Pets” section document the dollar amount of the pet security the landlord requires on the space provided.

Step 12 – The paragraph labeled “Abandonment” will require two numbers. Each number will concern itself with the number of consecutive days a tenant has gone missing before a landlord may enter the premises to check if the lessee has abandoned the property (and contract). First, enter the number of consecutive days a tenant has been missing after paying the rent. Then enter the number of consecutive days past the due date where rent has not been paid and the tenant has been missing from the property.

Step 13 – The blank line in the “Display of Signs” paragraph will need the number of days before the termination of this lease where a lessor may advertise and show the property to prospective tenants.

Step 14 – The paragraph labeled “Noise” requires a definition for the times of day where a lessee may receive or remove furniture from his/her residence. The first blank line will be the time of morning where this period begins then enter the time of afternoon/night where this period ends.

Step 15 – The “Parking” paragraph will define whether the lessee will be given access to a parking space by the lessor for renting the property. If so, then place a checkmark in the box next to the word “granted” and enter the location of this space and the number of vehicles the tenant is allowed to park there on the two blank lines that follow. If not, then place a checkmark in the box next to the words “not granted.”

Step 16 – If there were any terms and condition that have been verbally discussed and agreed to by the lessor and lessee that are considered part of the lease, they must be documented in the “Additional Terms and Conditions” to be covered by the lease. If there is not enough space attach a clearly labeled document named in this section. Make sure this document is named in this section and that it is signed and dated.

Step 17 – At the end of this document, the lessor must sign and print his/her name in the space labeled “Landlord.” Next, each lessee must sign and print his/her name in the area labeled “Tenant(s).”
