A Utah month-to-month rental agreement is a legally binding document that lets a landlord rent their property to a tenant from month to month. It outlines the effective date, monthly rent amount, deposits, fees, and rules for the tenant to follow.
Once both parties sign this document, they receive distinct rights and responsibilities under Utah’s landlord-tenant laws. For example, the tenant must pay their rent and behave according to the lease’s terms, while the landlord must provide a place to live. A month-to-month lease renews itself until either party terminates the agreement.
Minimum Termination Period: Under Utah state law, a landlord must provide at least 15 days’ notice before they end a month-to-month lease. Utah doesn’t specify a minimum notice period for tenants to terminate a lease, but it’s customary for them to still provide at least 15 days.
