What is your specific question about this matter for us today?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Just need an answer to the initial question whether upon expiration of a four year lease when tenant holds over with consent of landlord at higher rent Are the obligations of tenant and landlord pursuant to the original terms and conditions of the initial lease
Expert:  Law Educator, Esq. replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your reply.
Upon expiration of the original lease, the lease may continue forward as a hold over, even if the rent amount changes, with the other terms of the lease remaining in force. So when the parties agree to a new rent amount, the initial terms of the lease can remain and most all commercial leases have such a clause about holdover tenancies.
