Landlord & Tenant Law

What is the difference between a tenancy at will and a tenancy with a lease?

A tenancy at will is an agreement to rent from one rental period to the next. It can be either verbal or in writing. In this situation, a tenant generally rents the property monthly and either the landlord or tenant can end the relationship with approximately 30 days advance notice.

A tenancy with a lease is a written agreement that specifies a start and end date of the tenancy. It provides a tenant the right to remain at the property through the full lease period provided that rent is timely paid and the lease terms are complied with.
