The Jordanian legislature amended the Landlords and Tenants Act No 17, 2009; it includes new rules which represent a significant change in the relationship between landlords and tenants. In an analytical and critical approach, this research explores these new rules, especially the rules concerning the gradual termination of lease contracts concluded before 31/8/2000, in a period from 12/21/2010 to 12/31/2015. The rules also stipulate an increase in the rent ranging from 1% to 6%. The study furthermore discusses the landlords' rights such as the new procedures set in the amended Tenant Act, by which the landlord can undertake in case of the tenant's refusal to evacuate or hand over the leased property in the due time The study also points out as to how the lease contract is considered an executed document, and the right to proceed to interim relief.
