Tennessee Month-to-Month Lease Agreement | PDF – MS Word
A Tennessee month-to-month lease agreement, otherwise known as a “Tenancy at Will,” allows a landlord and tenant to come to terms for a short-term arrangement for the occupying of residential property. The contract has no end date and updates every month upon the payment of rent by the lessee. However, the landlord may terminate the lease with at least thirty (30) days’ notice to the tenant. The tenant may also terminate the contract under the same terms. It is highly recommended for legal purposes that the written termination notice be sent through certified mail.
The landlord should take the same caution when renting to a short-term tenant as all eviction laws in the State apply. Therefore, the landlord should require at least one month’s Security Deposit in addition to reviewing their income and employment through an application.
- The tenant must be given the lead-based paint disclosure to sign and attach to the lease if the leased unit was built prior to 1978.
Minimum Termination Notice
Thirty (30) days. Both the landlord and tenant may end a monthly tenancy by providing the other with written notice at least thirty (30) days before the next rental date (§ 66-28-512(b)).
