Yes, a lease can automatically renew in Mississippi. The lease may include an automatic renewal clause, which will set the terms of the renewal (usually either for the same duration as the original lease or on a month-to-month basis).
If the landlord accepts rent after the lease expires, the tenant becomes a month-to-month tenancy. In this case, 30-days’ written notice is required to terminate the tenancy (MS Code § 89-8-19 (2018)).
