How Can The Landlord/Tenant Relationship End?

Most leases provide that either the landlord or tenant can end the landlord/tenant relationship by giving the other party written notice that the lease will not be renewed. The lease normally sets forth how many days notice must be given before the lease ends in order to be effective. The relationship can end before the end of the lease term if both parties to the lease agree to terminate the relationship, if outside events such as a fire destroy the leased premises, or if one or both of the parties breaches the terms and conditions of the lease. The rights and remedies of either party in these situations is dependent on the nature and cause of the termination and the provisions of the lease.
