Hi, I'm Lucy, and I'd be happy to answer your questions today. Yes, you can. If your property isn't subject to rent controls, then you get to decide what rental terms you're willing to offer. You do not have to rent to anyone who will not sign a lease for a set term, or a written month-to-month lease. You're allowed to insist upon a one-year term, or longer if that's what you want and the tenant will agree. Please rate my answer positively to ensure I get credit for the time I spend helping. If you are on a mobile device, you may need to scroll to the right. Thank you.
