Create a high quality document online now!

The Oregon Month to Month Rental Agreement is a legal document whereas a landlord and tenant may agree that the agreement is renewed at the end of each month as long as the rent is paid in a timely manner and the property is cared for. Also providing that the landlord has not sent a notice to vacate. If the lessee decides to leave at the end of the month, then the lessee may do so without breaking the written agreement by providing notice according to State Statute § 91.070 which states that a tenant or landlord may end the lease with notice of 30 days written notice to vacate.

In Oregon this is also called the “At will lease” meaning the renter may remain in the rental unit until either the landlord or tenant should decide otherwise. Month to month rentals are beneficial to all parties as they are flexible in nature for all parties. If the lessee(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
