Define That Term #272

Dictionary_2 Sunday's term was tenancy at sufferance, which is defined as:

n. a "hold-over" tenancy after a lease has expired but before the landlord has demanded that the tenant quit (vacate) the premises. During a tenancy at sufferance the tenant is bound by the terms of the lease (including payment of rent) which existed before it expired. The only difference between a "tenancy at sufferance" and a "tenancy at will" is that the latter was created by agreement.

Edward Wiest got it right!

Today's term comes to us via Volokh Conspiracy:
