The Montana Month to Month Lease Agreement Form an easily used tool for documenting an At-Will Tenancy’s terms as they existed at the time of agreement. Month-to-Month leases are referred to as At-Will Tenancies because, unlike a fixed-term lease, either signature party participating in the agreement may choose to terminate their participation thus ending the contract altogether. Such a term to a lease provides all the benefits of protection the law affords the Landlord and the Tenant of a premises while simultaneously granting each party the additional freedom remaining solely by choice. Fixed term leases are extremely difficult to escape before their terms naturally terminate however so long as one is accordance with Montana Code Title 70 Ch. 24, a landlord or tenant may end their involvement and obligations to the other party and the leased property relatively easily.

This statute will require thirty days’ notice be issued by the terminating party to the remaining party in writing. Additionally, it must be received at least thirty days before the desired termination date. This will, hopefully, aid the party remaining party in staving off significant hardships and possible personal or financial disaster. Of course, it is also a consideration that will serve as a positive way to terminate an agreement. This is almost always desirable.

Minimum Termination Period – 30 days

Laws – § 70-24-441
