The Lease stays.
The lease has not been terminated.
But the tenant should not be with holding rent because the Landlord can take possession.
But the lease stands
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Yes he would.
Does that help?
It does indeed, if the landlord wants to take posessio;
If the landlord wants to take possession must he
must he give the tenant notice of termination in writing and give a period to rectify the arrears
How long would he have to give to rectify the arrears? There is nothing in the lease about termination.
es he must.
Yes he must.
The Landlord does not actually need to give notice to rectify arrears. The Landlord can take immediate possession without a Court Order.
Can I clarify anything?
If he takes possession can the tenant then rectify the arrears?
If the landlord takes possession can the tenant subsequently rectify the arrears? Would the landlord taking possession terminate the lease? would the fact that the landlord has not acknowledged the tenant's complaint affect the landlords right to take possession or terminate?
The tenant can apply for relief from the Court.
If the tenant does nothing then yes the lease ends. If the tenant applies for relief from the Court then if the Courts grant it, the lease continues.
