Texas Month to Month Rental Agreement Template

Create a high quality document online now!

The Texas Month to Month Rental Agreement is a legal document that is created between landlord and tenant that will allow the tenant to have a commencement date to the lease. Written according to Sec. 91.00, to terminate tenancy, the Landlord or Tenant must give the other party a written 30 day notice of Lease non-renewal (intent to vacate the premises). Unlike a traditional 12 month agreement, the tenant will be allowed to continue to rent the property, month to month, as long as the monthly rental payments are on time and continued care to the property is taken as long as the tenant is renting. If either the landlord or tenant would wish to end the agreement, they may do so by providing written notice to vacate the property, 30 days in advance. This will keep either party in compliance with this aspect of the agreement.

Minimum Termination Period – 30 days

Laws – § 91.001
