Grove v. Lutz

Grove v. Lutz involved Seller’s attempt to extend a lease, and collect the lease payments, on a property after Seller had sold the property to Buyers. In 2015, twelve years after Seller sold the property to Buyers, Seller entered into an amended lease to continue to collect rents from a tenant on the property. Even though Seller no longer owned the right to lease the property, the trial court blessed the transaction. The Superior Court reversed, holding that the deed clearly and unambiguously transferred all rights attendant to Buyers’ property. Thus, Seller lacked the authority to enter into the amended lease and had no right to receive rents.
