Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Good evening. Yes, once a lease expires, the tenants are expected to vacate. The purpose behind a lease is so that all parties know when it will start and when it ends. When a lease ends and it set to expire, the landlord and tenant can either agree to enter into a new lease term, change the tenancy to month to month or simply end it. If the tenant fails to vacate, then they would be holding over and the landlord would need to evict them through the court.
