Vermont Month-to-Month Lease Agreement Template
The Vermont month-to-month lease agreement is at once a short-term lease and a lease of indefinite length. Also known as a “tenancy at will,” a monthly lease agreement is designed to allow a tenant to rent property from a landlord on a month-to-month basis with no fixed end date. Aside from the temporary nature of the lease, this type of contract contains the same terms and conditions as any other rental agreement, such as rent amount, payment date, security deposit, tenant and landlord responsibilities, and conditions of termination. Either party is allowed to terminate the tenancy without cause as long as the action is carried out in accordance with State law.
Rent Increase (9 V.S.A. § 4455(b)) – The landlord may increase the rent as long as sixty (60) days’ notice is provided to the tenant.
Minimum Termination Notice (9 V.S.A. § 4467(e))- A landlord or tenant can terminate a lease without cause (if there is a written rental agreement) as long as thirty (30) days’ notice is provided. However, if the tenancy has lasted for more than two (2) years, sixty (60) days’ notice must be provided.
