Colorado Month-to-Month Lease Agreement | PDF – MS Word
The Colorado month-to-month lease agreement is a contract binding two parties together in a rental arrangement (landlord and tenant) that allows the tenant to renew the lease each month. This is typically for temporary rental situations where the landlord and tenant do not want to enter into a long term binding agreement. This way, either party may terminate the contract with written notice to one another (there is usually a specified time, typically one (1) month).
The agreement may also stay intact but be changed with written consent from both parties. A credit check is usually not necessary as long as a security deposit and last month’s rent has been collected from the tenant but a Rental Application is always recommended. This will protect the landlord from any damage and non-payment if it were to happen.
Minimum Termination Notice
A landlord or tenant may cancel this agreement at any time by submitting a written notice to the other party (§ 13-40-107). The period of notice varies depending on the following lengths of tenancies:
- Tenancy for one year or longer, ninety-one days;
- Tenancy of six months or longer but less than a year, twenty-eight days;
- Tenancy of one month or longer but less than six months, seven days;
- Tenancy of one week or longer but less than one month, or a tenancy at will, three days;
- Tenancy for less than one week, one day.
