Massachusetts Month-to-Month (Tenancy at Will) Lease Agreements
The Massachusetts month to month lease, “tenancy at will”, is a form that sets a standard rental contract between a landlord and tenant except there is no end date. Therefore, the agreement continues until either party gives notice of at least thirty (30) days before the next payment date (Chapter 186 Section 12).
If the tenant breaks their lease, the landlord must follow the same eviction process as a standard rental contract. It is advised that all tenants be accepted after verifying their finances and background with the rental application.
