what outcome are you seeking? are you looking to resume tenancy?

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 8 months ago.

Normally landlord takes possession and may sue for back rent. Practically, both sides can negotiate terms which include payment of rent and entry again. May need to go to court to get entry

are you concerned with being sued for rest of the lease term? what trouble specifically?

Expert:  Infolawyer replied 8 months ago.

Normally landlord finds another tenant and move on. If there is rent owing, something gets worked out for that by way of payment plan - often for a reduced amount. Kindly rate me positively.
