A tenant looking for a long-term lease may be discouraged by the flexibility of a monthly lease, allowing them to be subject to frequent rent increases or indefinite rental periods. For landlords, it is also worth considering the costs associated with more frequent tenant fluctuations, including advertising, screening and cleaning costs. If your rent is located in an area with lower occupancy rates, you may find it difficult to keep your unit rented for long periods of time. In case of late payment by the tenant, the owner has several possibilities. First, the lessor may accept late payment fees in the event of late payment.
