Montana Month-to-Month Lease Agreement Template
The Montana month-to-month lease agreement is a rental contract between a landlord and tenant that renews every month upon payment by the tenant. This type of arrangement may be terminated, altered, or changed by giving at least thirty (30) days’ notice to either party (§ 70-24-441). Even though the lease is considered a short-term contract, both parties are required to follow all State laws (see handbook) and the landlord is recommended to check every potential applicant’s background and credit with the rental application.
Rent Increase (§ 70-24-311) – Montana law does not specify how much a landlord may increase the cost of rent. However, a landlord may modify the lease at any point by providing the tenant with seven (7) days’ notice for a week-to-week tenancy, or thirty (30) days’ notice for a month-to-month tenancy.
Minimum Termination Notice (§ 70-24-441) – Thirty (30) days’ notice for month-to-month tenants, seven (7) days’ notice for week-to-week tenants.
