California Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
In California, this lease agreement is popular with individuals that do not plan on living in a property for a predetermined amount of time. A month to month, or tenancy at will, contract ends and begins every thirty (30) days. Although this agreement gives a larger amount of freedom to the tenant, it is highly recommended that the tenant informs and pays the landlord at least one (1) month in advance before evicting the property.
While this type of lease agreement is less constricting than the average, it is still recommended that the landlord performs a background check on the new tenant with a rental application, as crucial, game-changing information can be uncovered. Along with a background check, the landlord should request a security deposit to ensure any damage to the property is taken care of in advance. Because the tenant’s stay at the property may be shorter than average, as the landlord, it is accepted practice to reimburse the tenant the previously paid security deposit if the property remains damage-free during the tenants stay.
