California Monthly Lease Agreement Form

The California Monthly Lease Agreement is a record containing specific information between an inhabitant and a proprietor. Here, the amount of cash paid by the occupant to the landlord in return for living on the landlord’s property is specified, together with how frequently this amount should be paid.

Unlike a fixed-term rental agreement, this type of contract allows you to change specific terms of the lease as long as you issue a written notice in advance. The amount of time required depends on the changes being made.

In California, for example, the landlord may increase the rent every month. If the increase is by less than 10%, they should give the tenant a 30-day notice.

On the other hand, if the increase surpasses 10%, a 60-day notice should be served to the tenant.

Another flexibility given to a monthly contract is the length of the lease. As long this agreement (month-to-month lease) is in place, the two parties of the deal must maintain its terms as they are. However, unlike a fixed-term agreement, to terminate a month-to-month agreement, either party has to issue a 30-day notice to the other.,

Also, there must be a 60-day notice if the occupant has been living on the property for longer than one year. Note that some counties have their regulations regarding the month-to-month lease agreement.
