The Great Rent Wars

Chapter 942 prohibited the landlords from bringing summary proceedings against tenants whose leases expired before November 1, 1922, provided that the tenants were willing to pay a reasonable rent. This statute became the source of many landlord-tenant disputes because under certain unusual conditions it allowed landlords to ask the courts to oust holdover tenants. This chapter focuses on these “unusual conditions”, or “the four exceptions to the tenant’s right to remain against the landlord’s will,” which were largely the result of the Real Estate Board’s campaign to water down the rent laws.
