Arizona Month-to-Month Rental Agreement Template
An Arizona month-to-month lease agreement contract has the tenant pay rent every (30) thirty days to the landlord, until either the tenant or landlord gives 30-day notice to terminate. The primary benefit of this type of lease agreement is it enables each party to operate with a degree of flexibility; often monthly tenancies are temporary and used when a tenant is planning on staying for a few months at a time.
As a landlord, there are two (2) options to ensure that they receive their payment on time. The first option is to ask for a security deposit from the new tenants along with their first month’s payment of rent. This will ensure that if any damage to the property occurs, the landlord can use the security deposit as the insurance. The 2nd measure a landlord can take is to screen their tenants via a background check (use the rental application).
Minimum Termination Notice – The landlord or tenant must submit written notice to the other party upon vacating with at least thirty (30) days’ notice. For week-to-week tenancy, there must be at least ten (10) days given (§ 33-1375).
Rent Increase – The landlord must give the tenant at least thirty (30) days’ notice before raising the monthly rental amount (§ 33-1314(E)).
