Is a Contract to Lease Binding in Montana? on

Yes, a contract to lease is legally binding in Montana. To be valid, a contract to lease may have to be written, especially for a fixed term over one year; Montana requires both the landlord and tenant to sign a lease for it to be fully legally binding. Oral leases may be valid in some cases (especially when both parties later behave as though there’s an enforceable oral lease), but often have strict limitations on enforceability for things like length of the lease term.
