What Is an Oregon Month-to-Month Lease Agreement?

An Oregon month-to-month lease agreement is a monthly rental agreement between the tenant and the landlord. Primarily, it is a short-term arrangement. However, if it is mutually beneficial for the parties, they may make the month-to-month tenancy into an indefinite arrangement. This rental agreement renews at the beginning of each month unless one party decides to submit a written notice for a lease termination.

Month-to-month rental agreements must be written following Oregon landlord-tenant laws. These leases should include all of the provisions found in fixed-term leases, including:

  • The amount of the monthly rent and the due date
  • The amount of the late fee if the month's rent is not paid on time
  • Rent increases should they occur
  • Occupancy information
  • Pet policy
  • Parking policy
  • Whether subletting is allowed
  • The notice period for lease termination
  • How to deliver written notices
  • Information on eviction

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

Oregon month-to-month leases are governed by Chapter 91 of Oregon Code: Tenancy: Property Rights and Transactions: Creation and Termination of Tenancies. There are no state laws in Oregon that govern how much a landlord may charge for a security deposit for a rental unit. The Oregon State Bar provides an informative page explaining the basics of security deposits for landlords and renters. However, the landlord and tenant should not be considered a substitute for legal advice. If landlords or tenants have questions about residential lease agreements, they should talk with a lawyer.

Terminating an Oregon Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

Under § 91.070, the notice period for lease termination is 30 days. It does not need to be 30 days notice from the beginning of the new month rental period. It can be at any point of the month, according to Oregon law.
