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

A Nebraska month-to-month lease agreement is a short-term rental agreement between the landlord and tenant. The tenancy arrangement can be as short as 30 days or, if it is amicable between the parties, it can last as long as the parties wish.

A month-to-month rental agreement must comply with Nebraska landlord-tenant law. It should also include all of the provisions of a fixed-term lease, including:

  • The amount of the monthly rent and when it was due
  • The late fee amount
  • The amount of the security deposit
  • Rent increase
  • Whether the tenant must care for common areas
  • Whether subletting the rental property is allowed
  • Occupancy information for the rental unit
  • Parking policy
  • Pet policy
  • The notice period for lease termination if the tenant were to move out
  • How to deliver a written notice
  • Information regarding eviction

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

Month-to-month leases are governed by Nebraska’s Uniform Residential Landlord Tenant Act (Article 14, Section 76). According to § 74-1416, a security deposit cannot be more than one month of rent except when there is a pet. When move out occurs, the landlord can use the security deposit to cover the month's rent if it is unpaid, damages to the rental unit, or other noncompliance. The landlord must provide an itemized list of deductions to the renter and the remainder of the security deposit balance within 14 days of the lease termination or move out to their last known mailing address.

Landlords and property managers must understand state laws, federal laws, and housing codes for month-to-month tenancy arrangements. If necessary, seek legal advice before entering into a residential lease agreement. Seeking advice will help protect your legal interest in the real estate during the lease term.

Terminating a Nebraska Month to Month Lease Agreement

Under § 76-1437, the notice period for lease termination is 30 days. Nebraska lease agreements must be terminated with a written notice.
