A California month-to-month rental agreement is a legal contract that allows for the rental of residential property on a month-to-month basis, offering both parties flexibility and adaptability.
California has specific guidelines for periodic tenancies. Both parties are expected to adhere to the state’s tenant-landlord laws and regulations, including those governing habitability, eviction procedures, and fair housing.
Minimum Termination Period: In California, termination notice for a month-to-month lease requires at least 30 days (or 60 days if the tenant has lived there for over a year). Rent increases under 10% demand a 30-day notice, while over 10% requires a 90-day notice. Landlords must use certified or registered mail, while tenants can deliver in person, mail to the last known residence, or post a copy on the property.
