Ginnie , often month to month rentals take place after the innitial lease term ends. (by mutual agreement between landlord and tenant) Most landlords want full year leases due to the costs involved in placing tenants. They normally pay fees to both listing agent and agent representing tenant. They usually must get a certificate of occupancy which again comes with fee. They may have to paint or make minor repairs such as repairing of screens for windows,cleaning carpets...How is your credit? Many people are reluctant to lease because of how difficult it is to get short term tenants out. Speak with your attorney before moving out as you may create new problems. If you are intent on moving, I suggest you decide where you want to live and start by making enquiries of friends or relatives in the event they know of anyone looking or thinking about looking for tenants or house mates.
