What Is a Kansas Month-to-Month Lease Agreement?

A Kansas month-to-month lease is a short-term rental agreement between the landlord and tenant. A month-to-month rental agreement renews at the beginning of each month. Although the month-to-month tenancy is technically only 30 days, the arrangement may be so beneficial for both parties that they decide to extend it on an indefinite basis.

A month-to-month lease must comply with Kansas landlord-tenant laws. It should also contain the same provisions as a fixed-term rental lease agreement, including:

  • The amount of the monthly rent and when it is due
  • The amount of the late fee
  • The amount of the security deposit
  • Rent increases
  • Whether the renter is required to care for common areas
  • Whether subletting the rental property is allowed
  • Occupancy information for the rental unit
  • The parking policy
  • The pet policy
  • The notice period for lease termination for move out
  • How to deliver a written notice
  • Eviction information

What Laws Apply to Kansas Month-to-Month Lease Agreements?

Kansas Statutes Chapter 58 Article 25 Landlords and Tenants governs month-to-month leases. More specifically, §2501 includes specific terms of the lease in a tenancy at will (month-to-month residential lease agreement). A security deposit for an unfurnished rental property may not be more than one month’s rent according to §2550. If the real estate is furnished, the security deposit may not be more than one and a half month’s rent. The landlord may keep some or all of the security deposit for nonpayment of rent, to repair damages to the rental property that exceed normal wear and tear, or for “other legally allowable charges under the provisions of the rental agreement.” The security deposit balance must be returned to the renter within 14 to 30 days of move out. The landlord must provide an itemized statement of deductions regarding the condition of the premises.

Landlords and property managers may wish to seek legal advice to better understand federal law, the laws of the State of Kansas, and housing codes.
