The Tennessee month-to-month lease agreement is not as common as your average annual lease but is still a popular option in the rental world. Often executed by individuals who are not quite ready to commit to twelve months, this contract allows users to rent one month at a time. The terms of the agreement will automatically renew at the end of each term until terminated by either the landlord or tenant. However, users must understand that the state of Tennessee does require that the canceling party give a minimum of thirty (30) days’ written notice to the other in order to legally end the tenancy. Apart from the length of the contract’s term, the document will require more or less the same information as any other residential lease. The parties should record how much the periodic rent payments will be, the start date of the occupancy, and the sum of the security deposit.
