A Montana month-to-month rental agreement is a legal document that establishes a rolling lease, allowing the tenant to rent a residential property on a per-month basis without a predetermined end date. The only lease termination method is sending a termination notice; it is required for the notice to be sent via certified mail with a return receipt.
Before executing a month-to-month rental agreement, a landlord will perform their due diligence. This typically involves the tenant completing a rental application form, which allows the landlord to gather necessary information. Subsequently, a credit report should be run to verify the tenant’s financial reliability.
Minimum Termination Period: In Montana, either party—landlord or tenant—wishes to terminate the month-to-month lease must provide a notice of at least thirty (30) days.
Governing Law: § 70-24-441.
