The Massachusetts Month to Month Rental Agreement is an agreement commonly used by individuals to rent on a short term basis. Landlords who cater to students and low income individuals may use this agreement quite often. It gives flexibility to both landlord and tenant by giving them the ability to cancel the agreement with One (1) months written notice.
In the state of Massachusetts, a tenant with an unspecified rent term are referred to as “tenants at will”. This does not mean they have any less rights than a person with a lease renting for a fixed term of 1 or more years. The landlord still has to respect all laws that govern landlord-tenant relationships within the state of Massachusetts.
