There are 3 types of rental agreement that a landlord and tenants need to know before a landlord can have the agreement signed by his tenant, and the tenant/s prior to moving-in and signing it.


1. Month-to-Month Rental Agreements

Tenancy continues until one party or the other issues a notice to terminate tenancy 30 days written notice given before the rent is due. Rent control cities do not allow and requires the landlord to prove legally recognized reason for eviction. It is also known as "tenancy at will". 


2. One-Way Leases

The other rental agreement is the One-Way Leases. They are called one-way leases because, the only one that benefits from it is the landlord. This is also a month-to-month agreements where landlord charges a termination fees when tenants move out before certain number of months.


3. Fixed-term Leases
