Landlord Tenant Law Outline

Law Outlines > Property (Duke Wiener) Outlines

This is an extract of our Landlord Tenant Law document, which we sell as part of our Property (Duke Wiener) Outlines collection written by the top tier of Duke University School Of Law students.

The following is a more accessble plain text extract of the PDF sample above, taken from our Property (Duke Wiener) Outlines. Due to the challenges of extracting text from PDFs, it will have odd formatting:


1. LL's rights and remedy I. Types of tenancy a. Term of years: it will continue for a designated period i. Termination: it automatically expires when the agreed period ends, or upon breach of terms, or eminent domain b. Periodic tenancy: lasts for an initial fixed period and then automatically continues for addition equal periods until either the landlord or tenant terminates the tenancy by giving advance notice. c. Tenancy at will: has no fixed duration and endures only so long as both the landlord and the tenant desire. i. Today most tenancies at will arise by implication, not from an express agreement. E.g. under an unenforceable lease, before any lease has been negotiated. ii. Usually ends by advance notice (at common law, it ends whenenver the landlord or tenant chooses, any form of notice would terminate the tenancy immediately) iii. One way tenancy at will (T can occupy premises for as long as he wants) can be construed as tenancy at will, or a determinable life estate.
