LAW 516-001 – Property II

Periodic Tenancy


The periodic tenancy is a tenancy that is measured by successive, identical periods of time. A periodic tenancy automatically renews for successive periods, unless one of the parties gives proper notice to terminate the tenancy. If not otherwise specified, the common law generally requires that the party seeking to terminate the tenancy must provide notice at least one period prior to the date of termination, up to a six-month max.
