What does "I only rent out full month" mean when said by a potential landlord?

At first I thought it means that the apartment can only be rented starting at the first day of a month, but now I think it might mean that it is only rented out for one month at a time. Is it a standard phrase in English or should I ask the person who said it to clarify?

    You had better ask the landlord what is meant, but my guess is the apartment will not be rented out for less than a full month, i.e. not one day or one week. – Weather Vane May 17 '19 at 10:13

    I think it will mean closer to your first idea: you can only start on the first day of a month, and you can only finish on the last day of a month. Even if you live there for a full year, when you decide to move out, if you tell him "I am leaving on the 12th", he will still require you to pay a full month's rent (paying for the 13th-31st even though you won't be using the place those days). – Hellion May 17 '19 at 12:17

I would sugges you ask the person who said it, however its only logical to assume that he meant was the time frame of the rent, so you must rent for 1 full month (usually calendar month) and not less
