Connecticut Tenant Holding Over Prohibited

The Connecticut General Statutes Chapter 830 Section 47a-3d addresses what happens should a tenant stay after a residential lease expires in the following manner:

Holding Over is not Evidence of a New Lease

Holding over by any lessee, after the expiration of the term of his lease, shall not be evidence of any agreement for a further lease. Parol leases of lands or tenements reserving a monthly rent and in which the time of their termination is not agreed upon shall be construed to be leases for one month only.

Conn. Gen. Stat. Title 47a Ch 830 Sec 47a-3d.
