Life of a Landlord: Can a Tenant Cancel the Decision to Move Out?

The L.A. Times explores what happens when a tenant gives a landlord notice that he's vacating, but then changes his mind.  The real estate expert for the Times writes, "When a tenant serves a written notice of termination, that notice is binding on the tenant. The tenant does not have a right to unilaterally revoke the termination. A tenant who gives notice and remains in the property beyond the time frame of the 30-day notice is no longer a lawful tenant and can be named in an unlawful detainer eviction case on the 31st day."
