A court proceeding between a landlord and a holdover tenant is called a holdover proceeding. Problems of holdover tenancy can be headed off by including a clause in the original lease stating what happens at the end of the lease period. For example, a year-long apartment rental lease might specify that at the expiration of the lease, the lease will convert to a month-to-month lease.
