A South Dakota month-to-month rental agreement is a contract that lets a tenant live on a landlord’s property on a monthly basis. This document doesn’t establish a specific termination date. Instead, either party can terminate the agreement as long as they do so within South Dakota’s landlord-tenant laws.
Before entering this agreement, a landlord can screen potential tenants to ensure the tenant they choose is a suitable fit for the property. Once the agreement is active, both parties receive protection from the state’s laws.
Minimum Termination Period: A landlord must give at least 30 days’ notice to terminate a month-to-month lease, while a tenant must provide at least 15 days’ notice.
