Tennessee Month-to-Month Lease Agreement


A Tennessee month-to-month lease agreement establishes a periodic tenancy, where tenants rent a room, apartment unit, condominium, or house monthly. As long as the tenant pays rent at the beginning of each month, the agreement renews automatically. While designed for short-term leasing, these monthly leases can persist for years if neither the landlord nor tenant terminates it.

This contract is a variation of the standard residental lease agreement. It contains many similar sections and conditions, including utilities, rent amount, security deposits, repairs, guests, parking, and pets.
