1944.  A hiring of lodgings or a dwelling house for an unspecified
term is presumed to have been made for such length of time as the
parties adopt for the estimation of the rent. Thus a hiring at a
monthly rate of rent is presumed to be for one month. In the absence
of any agreement respecting the length of time or the rent, the
hiring is presumed to be monthly.
