Can landlord end the lease in lease period The lease is 4.5

This answer was rated:

Can landlord end the lease in lease period? The lease is 4.5 months till Dec.31,2011. After The tenant moved in for a week, the landlord wanted to end the lease and ask the tenant move out on Sep30. Is it illegal? Can tenants live till the end of the lease and don't care about the landlord's notice. Thanks

Good evening. The landlord cannot terminate the lease prior to its termination date and the landlord cannot force the tenant out. In order to evict the tenants, the landlord would have to prevail in an unlawful detainer action against the tenant, but the landlord cannot win that action because the tenant is not unlawfully remaining in the property....the tenant has a lease. As a result, the judge will not issue an eviction order and the landlord will have no legal right to cause the tenant to leave early.
