every state; a few, like W. Virginia, allow a lien on personal property, but most do
not. Landlord Tenant Law varies in each state. You can check your state's law in this
web, however, be sure that you always review any legal document with competent legal
council in your state before you use it.

due amount, or prevent Landlord from exercising any other rights and remedies under this
agreement, and as provided by law.

or agreements herein, Landlord or his agents may give Tenant five days' notice to cure

thereafter until said breach has been cured, Landlord or his agents may terminate this
lease upon five days' additional notice to the Tenant, with said notice being in lieu of a
Notice to Quit, which Tenant hereby waives.
Said termination shall be ineffective if Tenant cures said breach or commences and
diligently pursues reasonable steps to effectuate such cure at any time prior to the
expiration of said five-day termination. Upon terminating this lease as provided herein,
Landlord or his agent may commence proceedings against Tenant for his removal as provided
for by law.

or agreements herein, Tenant may give Landlord ten days' notice to cure said breach,
