Landlord/Tenant Law

What Happens If A Tenant Remains In Possession Of The Property?

If the tenant remains in possession without the landlord’s consent after the expiration of the term of the rental agreement or its termination under the Oklahoma Residential Landlord and Tenant Act, the landlord may immediately bring an action for possession and damages. If the tenant’s holdover is willful and not in good faith the landlord may also recover an amount not more than twice the average monthly rental, computed and prorated on a daily basis, for each month or portion thereof that the tenant remains in possession. If the landlord consents to the tenant’s continued occupancy, a month to month tenancy is created, unless the parties otherwise agree.
