Vermont Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
The Vermont Month-to-Month Lease Agreement is a form utilized by landlords looking to lease without establishing a fixed end-date. A fixed-end date refers to a lease that binds both parties into a lease for an average duration of one (1) year. Leasing without a long-term obligation is often preferred by landlords/property owners that are looking for increased freedom in their rental contracts or by those that cannot lease their property for a full twelve (12) months due to them living in it for a part of the year. Either party can send a termination notice to the other party to end the contract with either sixty (60) or ninety (90) days’ notice. If the parties would prefer a shorter notice for terminating the agreement, the landlord can edit the lease to reflect said shorter notice time.
Statute: § 4467
Required Notice to Terminate: If the tenant(s) have lived continuously in the same rental for two (2) years or less, the termination must be at least sixty (60) days after the date of the written notice. If the tenant(s) lived in the rental for two (2) years or more, the termination must be at least ninety (90) days after the delivery of the notice.
