New York Month to Month Rental Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The New York Month to Month Rental Agreement is a legal document whereas a landlord and tenant agree that the agreement is renewed at the end of each month as long as the rent is paid on time and the landlord has not provided notice to vacate for whatever the reason. If the renter decides to leave at the end of the month, then the tenant(s) may do so without breaking the written agreement by providing notice pursuant to to § 232-b which states that a tenant or landlord may end the lease with notice of one month written in advance.

Basically, the renter may remain in the rental unit until either the landlord or tenant should decide otherwise. Month to month rentals are beneficial inasmuch as they are much more flexible for the tenant(s), especially when they are unsure exactly how long they will need to remain in a particular property. If the tenant(s) are unsure whether or not they completely understand the language of the agreement, they may consider consultation with an attorney of their choice to clarify.

Minimum Termination Period – 30 days
