Rhode Island Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
The Rhode Island monthly rental agreement is written between a residential landlord and tenant to create a legally binding document that does not have an end date. Also known as a “tenancy at will”, this document is a relaxed arrangement for short or long term renters that do not know exactly when they will leave the premises and at the same time must give at least thirty (30) days to the other party.
- Raising Rent (Section 34-18-16.1) – The landlord must give at least thirty (30) days and sixty (60) days to individuals over the age of sixty-two (62).
- Terminating a Month to Month (Section 34-18-37) – The landlord or tenant must give at least thirty (30) days’ notice to one another before leaving the property.
- Identification – The landlord must inform the tenant of any and all persons allowed to enter the property on behalf of the landlord. The address for official notices must also be included in the agreement.
- Lead-Paint – Form given due to federal law that states all improved rental properties before 1978 must be identified to the tenant as having the potential of this material on the premises.
