Missouri Month to Month Rental Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Missouri Month to Month Lease Agreement Template is an easy to use contract form meant to define the specifics of an At-Will Tenancy on a dated document bearing the signatures of the participants. When a document that assigns roles to signature parties and contains terms and conditions for each signature party, it becomes binding upon being dated and signed. The act of signing one’s names is legal proof of the role and any terms and/or conditions applying to that have been accepted and agreed to by that individual. In the case of a lease, this will also place several requirements upon each role depending on various factors such as lease type.

For instance, in the State of Missouri Section 441.061.0 of Chapter 441 in the Missouri Revised Statutes will require any party in a Month-to-Month Agreement to provide one month’s notice before terminating the lease. Since, an At-Will Tenancy, such as a Month-to-Month, has no actual termination date named, it is left up to the participants to decide when the agreement shall terminate. Such a requirement serves as a precaution. Individual counties and/or cities may have additional statutes governing this type of lease so it is imperative to be up to date on the local ordinance governing leases.
