Landlord Accepted Rent After Lease Ended
LVT Number: 8636
Landlord sued to evict tenant after tenant's lease expired. The trial court ruled for landlord, and tenant appealed. Tenant claimed that landlord had waived its right to evict tenant. The appeals court agreed, and ruled for tenant. Landlord accepted rent for a period after tenant's lease had terminated, which was a waiver of the termination notice.
