Do month to month rental agreements need to be renewed?
Applies to the U.S.) Yes and No. In almost 99.999% of cases, a month-to-month rental is a verbal agreement, not a written one. Renewal is accomplished merely by maintaining occupancy, paying the agreed upon rent, and the landlord allowing you to stay and continue to pay that rent. Bear in mind that most (if not all) State landlord/tenant laws still require some written notice to terminate a month-to-month (verbal) rental agreement.
