A Utah Month to Month Lease Agreement is a special kind of lease designed for short term living arrangements. This kind of lease ends at the end of every payment period (typically a month, as the name implies) and renews when the tenant pays rent again. This makes it ideal for landlords who are unsure of their tenants ability to maintain a lease, or a tenant who wants to have the option to quickly exit a property.
Unlike a One Year Lease, this type of lease can be altered or terminated quickly. In Utah, a landlord must give the tenant fifteen (15) days written notice before terminating or altering the lease in any way. Similarly, a tenant must give the landlord fifteen (15) days written notice before moving out.
Although they are a significantly different kind of lease, Month to Month Leases are still governed by the same set of laws that govern long term leases, usually with specific clauses within the laws pertaining to Month to Month Leases. All of the Utah state laws governing leases can be found in Utah State Code Chapters 57-17-1 to 57-17-5 and 57-22-1 to 57-22-7
