North Dakota Month to Month Lease Agreement
The North Dakota Month to Month Lease Agreement is a non-restrictive type of rental contract used for renting rooms, units, condominiums, or homes a month at a time. Because the parties do not agree to an official end-date, the contract will renew automatically on a monthly basis until either party decides to end it. So long a written notice is provided at least thirty (30) days before the next rental payment (expiration of the month), the agreement will be legally terminated. The agreement type is commonly preferred by homeowners and property managers that cannot lease a certain rental on a yearly basis. This could be due to the property owner living in the rental for part of the year or another reason. Alternatively, some landlords opt for leasing by the month due to the ease in evicting tenants, altering the rental contract (can be altered every month), or the higher rent that is typically charged with the lease type.
Statute: § 47-16-07
Required Notice to Terminate: Landlords (or tenants) can end the lease with a written notice provided at least thirty (30) days in advance of the expiration of the month. Additionally, landlords can revise the signed contract so long the required notice is provided.
