Self-Extending Lease

The self-extending lease is the workhorse of Massachusetts rental agreements. Unlike a fixed-term lease, this self-extending lease automatically renews. You may wish to consider one of our optional clauses, like the automatic rent increase, to minimize your effort.

Notes About This Downloadable Lease
