In the state of New Hampshire, a month to month lease agreement is a legal contract that landlords use to officiate a monthly lease agreement. These documents differ from traditional long term leases in the sense that they are only valid for a period of one month but will renew at the beginning of each month until canceled by either the landlord or tenant. Month to month agreements are very similar to their long-term counterparts, differing mainly in commitment time. Otherwise, they contain the same type of information that one would find in a long term lease such as, rent amount, due date, late fees, rules of occupancy, parking provisions and etc. When a landlord or tenant wishes to terminate the lease, a termination letter must be written and given to the other party. In addition, this letter must be submitted at least 30 days before the termination will take effect.
