Create a high quality document online now!

The Pennsylvania Month to Month Lease Agreement is a legal document whereas all forms must be written in accordance with State laws located in the Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951 (Title 68). The tenant(s) and Landlord, with this document agree that the renter may continue occupancy on a premises as long as they wish, provided all of their rent payments are paid on time and the landlord has not provided notice of vacancy. This same document also allows the tenants to  provide 15 days notice to vacate the premises.

Short term leases such as this one provide a flexibility for anyone who is in need of a less complicated, longer term lease expiration. Many renters aren’t certain how long they may need to remain in one place and therefore this type of agreement offers a remedy, creating an easier way for either party to expedite the vacancy.

The tenant(s) must read the entire agreement carefully to be certain that they understand the rules of the lease. If the tenants do not understand the rules, they may wish to seek the services of an attorney to look over the agreement to be certain that the document is clear and the tenants will be able to reside on the premises according to the rules.

Minimum Termination Period – 15 days if a year or under, 30 days if the tenancy has lasted over a year.

Laws § 250.501
