Kansas Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
The Kansas Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is a rental form used for renting out a residential property on a short-term basis. Once signed by a landlord (lessor) and tenant (lessee), the tenant(s) receive the right to live in the property so long they abide by the rules in the lease and make all required payments in full. The major difference between a monthly-based contract and a yearly lease is that the monthly agreement can be terminated by either party with a written notice made and delivered thirty (30) days in advance of the next payment. Landlords and property owners that decide to use a monthly lease typically do so because they themselves cannot guarantee the property for a full year. This could be due to them living in it for a portion of the year or other obligations. The greatest liability to landlords that decide to use the contract is that they could wind up needing to find several tenants in a single year for the same property, whereas a yearly lease binds a tenant (or family) to lease the same property for a full year (allowing landlords to plan far more effectively).
Statute: § 58-2570
Required Notice to Terminate: At least thirty (30) days’ notice by either party. For tenants in the military, they can provide a minimum of fifteen (15) days’ notice prior to leaving due to orders received.
