Yes. A landlord must offer a written lease. If the landlord does not do that, the law sets out a specific lease that will apply. This lease has these rules. The lease is 12 months with no automatic renewal. Rent is paid in 12 monthly payments. Rent is due on the first of the month and late after the fifth of the month. A reasonable late fee may be charged. The security deposit can be no more than two months’ rent. The landlord and tenant still may enter into a written lease.
