When tenant may surrender premises
Real Property (RPP) CHAPTER 50, ARTICLE 7
§ 227. When tenant may surrender premises. Where any building, which
is leased or occupied, is destroyed or so injured by the elements, or
any other cause as to be untenantable, and unfit for occupancy, and no
express agreement to the contrary has been made in writing, the lessee
or occupant may, if the destruction or injury occurred without his or
her fault or neglect, quit and surrender possession of the leasehold
premises, and of the land so leased or occupied; and he or she is not
liable to pay to the lessor or owner, rent for the time subsequent to
the surrender. Any rent paid in advance or which may have accrued by the
terms of a lease or any other hiring shall be adjusted to the date of
such surrender.
