A Michigan month-to-month rental agreement is a flexible rental arrangement between a landlord and tenant for residential property that does not have a specified end date. This type of lease agreement remains in effect indefinitely until either the landlord or tenant decides to terminate it by providing notice to the other party.
It allows both parties to have more freedom in their rental arrangement, as the tenant can move out with proper notice, and the landlord can adjust the rent or terminate the lease if necessary.
It’s important to note that after the tenant has resided on the property for more than thirty days, they are entitled to the same protections afforded under Chapter 554 (Real and Personal Property). This means that tenants have certain rights, such as the right to a livable and safe dwelling, and protection against unlawful eviction or discrimination.
Minimum Termination Period: To terminate the lease agreement, either party must provide at least 30 days’ notice.
Law: § 554.134
