This type of agreement is great for individuals who work short term, or contracted positions and need to move often. This is a type of agreement is also great for landlords because it allows the landlord to have greater flexibility if his or her tenants turn out to be troublesome because the landlord does not have to deal with them for a whole year. These types of agreements work just like long term agreements, providing specific information on rent payments, due dates, and property rules.
