Create a high quality document online now!

A Rhode Island month to month lease agreement lets a landlord and tenant enter into an agreement that can be canceled at any time with 30 days’ notice. Written in accordance with § 34-18-37, there will be a beginning date stated on the document, but there is no ending date except a 30-day notice to vacate by either party.

The agreement provides, for the most part, all of the same rules presented in a standard residential lease, with the exception that the tenant and landlord have the right to end the lease with 30 days notice as opposed to being locked into a long term lease.
