Do you have to pay rent if there is no lease?

Yes, you still have to pay rent if there is no lease. If there is no written lease, but there is an oral agreement, this is valid if your tenancy is one year or less. If there is no oral agreement or written lease, this means that you have a month-to-month tenancy at will, and you should pay rent on a monthly basis. Ideally, to prevent confusion, you should pay rent on the first day of each month. There is no grace period for paying rent, and you can be evicted for non-payment, so it is important to keep up with payments if you can.You May Also Like to Read:
