A Pennsylvania month-to-month rental agreement is a contract that allows a tenant to live on a landlord’s property on a monthly basis. It can be a written or oral contract, but most landlords prefer to get this agreement in writing if any disputes arise. With a written record, they can have more reliable guidelines for handling problems.
Under this arrangement, the tenant continues paying rent and living on the property until either party issues notice that the tenancy is over. As long as either party doesn’t send a notice, the tenancy renews itself each month automatically.
Minimum Termination Period: A landlord must provide at least 15 days’ notice before terminating a month-to-month lease in Pennsylvania. The state doesn’t have a provision for the notice tenants must provide before terminating this arrangement.
