Gen. No. 42,897. (Abstract of Decision.)

Opinion filed June 16, 1944

LANDLORD AND TENANT, § 34when "offer" of tenancy is not subject to acceptance. Where, in action for rent of realty which plaintiff had redeemed from foreclosure sale, in which action plaintiff recovered less than amount sued for, it appeared that only offer of tenancy for nine-months' period was made in notice which was dated more than two months before right of redemption expired, and which had effect of offering tenancy from date of redemption by plaintiff more than three months before expiration of receiver's right of possession, held that, since notice containing offer was extinguished and nullified by injunction order entered in foreclosure proceeding at instance of receiver, there was no valid offer of tenancy for nine-months' period and that therefore there could not have been acceptance of "offer" either by implication or otherwise.
