North Dakota Month-to-Month Lease Agreement
The North Dakota month to month lease agreement is a form that may be used for a tenant that wants to rent property with the condition that they, or the landlord, may cancel the agreement with at least thirty (30) days’ notice (Statute 47-16-15). The tenant may cancel within twenty-five (25) if the landlord gives notice to change any part of the terms and conditions.
The landlord should understand that they will have to follow the same process for evicting a month to month tenant as if it were a standard (i.e. lessee with a one (1) year term). Therefore they should require the applicant to fill in the lease application and verify their employment and income status.
Lead-Based Paint – As per federal law, any housing unit constructed prior to 1978 must have this document handed out to the residents at the time of contract signing.
Move-in Checklist – If the landlord collected a Security Deposit (which may not be greater than one (1) month’s rent unless there is a pet) the this form must be issued to the lessee to help protect their deposit at the end of the term from being falsely deducted.
