Illinois Month-to-Month Lease Agreement

An Illinois month-to-month lease agreement is a legally binding document that allows for the short-term use of rental space between a landlord and a tenant. The contract renews after each payment has been made until either the landlord or tenant terminates it. The month-to-month option would be great if both parties were flexible since only a 30-day contract termination notice is needed.
