    Re: tenant at sufferance hasn't paid rent for over a year

    Posted by Ralph on 2/18/09

    This seems like a classic case of tenancy at sufferance. A
    tenancy at sufferance is when a tenant stays on the property
    after the expiration of the lease. The payment of rent would
    mean that there would be no tenancy at sufferance, but rather
    an extension of the lease (maybe unenforcable without a
    written contract, however).
