Is surrendering property back to the landlord at their request a breach of lease? Posted on May 27, 2011
Landlord files for eviction for non-payment of rent. When the landlord’s representative arrived and requested possession of the property and the keys, the tenant complied with the request. This was prior to the arrival of the sheriff. Because the property to surrendered without incident and the sheriff was not needed, does this constitute a breach of the lease agreement making the tenant responsible for paying the landlord additional rent through the term of the lease?
