A Utah month-to-month lease agreement is a special type of lease agreement for short-term residential arrangements. This type of lease ends at the end of each payment period (usually one month, as the name suggests) and extends when the tenant pays the rent again. This makes it ideal for landlords who are not sure if their tenants are able to maintain a lease or for a tenant who wants to have the opportunity to leave a property quickly. A monthly lease is an option that gives more flexibility to the landlord and tenant. This is an agreement starting with a single month, and at the end of that month, the contract is automatically renewed, unless one of the parties has stated that it does not wish to continue with the agreement. This gives the tenant the flexibility to move out of the unit without much notice, so it can be comfortable and a great temporary place to live. The landlord can also terminate the agreement with very little notice, so they will also be able to fill the unit with people who are good tenants. As a general rule, in the case of a monthly lease, the landlord and tenant must provide notification if they leave the property. In Utah, the landlord must allow a 15-day period during which they want the tenant to evacuate which should give them enough time to find a new home in the area. On the other hand, there is no law for the tenant to provide notice. Although a notification is appreciated, there is no specific time for the tenant to provide it before the evacuation of the unit.
The Utah Month to Month Rental Agreement is a legal document, also known as an „after authorization“ agreement, used between the lessor and tenant for a monthly residential property lease. Under section 78B-6-802, the tenant would be allowed to continue to rent the property monthly until the tenant or lessor gives 15 days` notice to the other person to evacuate the premises. In this state, there is no status that the landlord must respect if he plans to increase the rent. This means that there is no time required for the tenant to provide the prior notification, and there is no set number of periods during which the rent per year can be increased with a monthly rent. The amount in which the rent can be increased is also not set by the state, so the rental prices a tenant will pay are most likely based on the market value of the rental property in the area. Unlike a one-year lease, this type of lease can be quickly modified or terminated. In Utah, a landlord must notify the tenant fifteen (15) days in writing before terminating or modifying the lease in any way….
