Ways that Tenants Breach Leases
There are several ways that a tenant can breach the terms of a lease. One way is by failing to pay the agreed-upon rent. At other times, the tenant may breach another provision of the lease. For example, the tenant could breach the lease by subleasing the premises without the landlord’s consent or by causing a nuisance on the property.
Ways that Landlords Breach Leases
Landlords also breach leases when they fail to abide by one or more lease provisions. For example, if the landlord engages in self-help to evict a tenant, such as by cutting off the tenant’s utilities, as opposed to going through the court system, then that amounts to a breach of the lease. The landlord can also breach the lease by interfering with the tenant’s use and enjoyment of the property or, in come cases, if the landlord fails to maintain the rental property.
