Rental Agreement with a Month-to-Month Tenancy by pellcity27


The agreement by which one party holds possession of the real property owned by another is a lease. The person who owns the real property is known as the lessor or landlord. The lessee, or tenant, is the one who occupies the property. The following elements are necessary to the establishment of the relationship of landlord and tenant: 1. The occupying of the land must be with the consent of the landlord; 2. A reversionary interest in the land must remain in the land�lord.; that is, the landlord must be entitled to retake the possession of the land upon the expiration of the lease; and 3. The tenant must have present possession in the land. This means a right to be in possession of the land now. Tenancies are classified by duration as tenancies for years, from year to year, at will, and by sufferance. When land is held for an indefinite period, which may be terminated at any time by the landlord or the tenant, a tenancy at will exists. A person who enters into possession of land for an indefinite period with the owner's permission, but without any agreement as to rent, is a tenant at will.
