Knowledge Base: Form
Rental Agreement Month-to-Month
The purpose of this form is to clearly state the terms agreed to by both the owner (“Landlord”) and the tenant(s) (“Resident”). When properly completed and signed by both parties, it becomes a binding and legally enforceable contract.
Two agreements are available: Rental Agreement Month-to-Month (Form CA-040) and Lease Agreement (Form CA-041).
This instruction sheet is for the Rental Agreement Month-to-Month, Form CA-040. This form cannot be completed without the landlord first determining whether and how AB 1482 (which imposes rent caps and just cause eviction restrictions) applies to the property. See www.caanet.org/ab1482/.
Do not complete this form without first reviewing the instruction sheet.
