Tennessee Month-to-Month Lease Agreement


The Tennessee Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is a form used for establishing a periodic tenancy in which lessees rent a room, apartment unit, condominium, or home on an ongoing basis one (1) month at a time. So long the lessee(s) keep paying rent at the start of every month, the contract will renew automatically. Although designed for short-term leasing, monthly leases can go on for years if neither the landlord or tenant(s) decide to terminate it.

The contract is a variation of the standard yearly contract and contains many of the same sections and conditions, of which cover utilities, rent amount, security deposits, repairs, guests, parking, pets, and more.
