§37-1-1. Renewal of lease by or to persons under disability.
Where an infant, insane person, or convict is entitled to or
bound to renew any lease, any person on behalf of such infant,
insane person, or convict, or any person interested, may apply by
petition or motion in a summary way, to the circuit court of the
county in which the land leased or some part thereof may lie, and
by the order of such court, any person appointed by it may, from
time to time, surrender or accept a surrender of such lease, or
take or make a new lease of the same premises for such term, and
with such provisions as the court shall direct. Such reasonable
sums as may be incurred to renew any such lease shall, with
interest thereon, be paid out of the profits of the leasehold
premises and be a charge thereon until such payment.
