Leases end for a variety of reasons. The most obvious reason is that the lease term expires. The lease also terminates if the tenant moves out with the landlord's agreement. In some situations, the lease may terminate if either party gives the other certain notice.
Finally, the lease may be terminated by the landlord after giving proper notice if the tenant breaches the terms of the lease. Termination of the lease is discussed in this section. The remedies available to the landlord or the tenant after the lease terminates are covered later in the section on Eviction.
