Pennsylvania Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
The Pennsylvania month to month lease is a relaxed type of rental contract as the landlord and tenant have a relationship where the basic terms are agreed upon except there is no date where it terminates. This means that, as long as either party does not send written notice within thirty (30) days, that the agreement shall be perpetual (go on forever and ever). The landlord and tenant will still be bound to the State laws (Landlord and Tenant Act of 1951) and therefore the landlord should ask for the tenant’s personal information (with the rental application), a processing fee (non-refundable), and the amount of the Security Deposit (no more than two (2) months’ rent (Section 250.511a) prior to move-in.
- Security Deposit – The landlord must give the tenant notice of where the funds are located.
- Lead-Paint – Only required if the housing structure was constructed before 1978.
