When a lease expires for a property that your tenant occupies, you have certain rights as a landlord. You can negotiate a renewal lease or an extension of the current lease or you can enforce the lease that has ended in which the tenant no longer has a right to possess the property. When the lease expires without any renewal or extension having been agreed to and your tenant refuses to leave the property, you should consult with an experienced evictions attorney to determine the appropriate steps to take to regain possession.

Dealing With Tenants That Will Not Leave

Are you currently dealing with a tenant who will not leave the property after the lease has expired? If so, contact Jay L. Fabrikant, an evictions lawyer with experience in dealing with holdover tenants.

As a landlord, you must protect your rights to the property you own by enforcing the contracts into which you enter. Your tenants have the responsibility to either negotiate a lease renewal or extension or leave the property when the lease expires. It is unfortunate when they choose, instead, to hold over and create legal difficulties for both themselves and you as the landlord. A knowledgeable evictions attorney can help you to determine whether any notice to the tenant must be given by the landlord prior to the expiration of the lease and can represent you in the eviction action to remove the tenant who refuses to leave after the lease has expired.
