In order to terminate a Month-to-Month Contract, an owner or manager needs only to inform a tenant that s/he must vacate the premises within 30 days. The law does not require that an owner or manager give the tenant any reason for this action. Tenants have the same freedom. A tenant who signs a contract is legally obligated to pay the full amount of rent throughout the specified period, even if s/he moves out. Under a Month-to-Month Agreement, a tenant needs only to give the owner or manager 30 days notice of his/her intention to leave in order to satisfy all legal obligations.
