Landlord Question and Answer Forum

If I don't renew or terminate the tenants lease does it automatically default to a month to month lease arrangement when the current lease expires? I live in Pennsylvania.

Typically "Yes". Legally, it's considered a MTM verbal.

RE: Lease
I am not sure, but one thing we do with our properties is to get tenants insurance. Depends on the coverage of the policy, I guess. We also recommend to our tenants to get their own Rental Insurance in case there is any vandalism, robbery, etc. We had one tenant wanting us to call our insurance because someone broke in and stole thousands of money from the property. I reminded him of the rental insurance we recommended and that is part of the lease they signed. We were not responsible for their losses. Some of his items were stolen and one door was damaged. He paid for the damaged cause during the break in. I hope this helps you.
