(1972) Where addendum to lease provided that failure to pay rental installments on or before date due would result in immediate termination of right to possession, that no notice of any kind would be required, and that time was of the essence, court ruled on appeal from unlawful detainer action that appellant landlord would be held to scrupulous observance of every common law requirement unless waived by agreement and found that landlord's conduct in accepting ten consecutive monthly rent payments late raised submissible fact issue as to waiver of strict compliance by tenant.
