Connecticut Month-to-Month Lease Agreement


The Connecticut Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is a form used by landlords to lease a home, room, or rental unit for thirty (30) days at a time. The agreement does not contain an end date, theoretically allowing the lease to go on forever if neither the landlord (owner/manager) or tenant (renter) decides to end it. Because of the lease’s flexibility, it is commonly used by landlords and homeowners for leasing property that they live in themselves for part of the year. A summer home, for example, would commonly be rented out using a monthly lease during the winter months. The cost of increased flexibility is the fact that landlords could face needing to find a new tenant at a moment’s notice. To terminate the contract, either party must provide the other with a minimum of one (1) month of notice prior to the next rent payment, unless the landlord specifies a different timeframe in the lease.
