1 of 100 DOCUMENTS ROSIE ZWICK, INDIVIDUALLY AND D/B/A POST OAK EXECUTIVE SUITES, Appellant v. LODEWIJK CORPORATION, Appellee No. 6-92-088-CV COURT OF APPEALS OF TEXAS, SIXTH DISTRICT, TEXARKANA 847 S.W.2d 316; 1993 Tex. App. LEXIS 35 January 12, 1993, Decided January 12, 1993, Filed SUBSEQUENT HISTORY: [**1] Appellee's Motion for Rehearing Overruled February 9, 1993. PRIOR HISTORY: On Appeal from the 334th Judicial District Court. Harris County, Texas. Trial Court No. 89-21737 DISPOSITION: The judgment in favor of Lodewijk and the Miller Company is reversed, and the case is remanded to the trial court for a trial. COUNSEL: Hon. William F. Harmeyer, Attorney at Law, 7324 Southwest Freeway, Suite 800, Houston, TX 77074. Hon. Joseph O. Slovacek, Hoover, Bax & Shearer, 5847 San Felipe, Suite 2200, P. O. Box 4547, Houston, TX 77210.

Zwick fell behind on her rental payments during the mid-1980's and, in 1987, renegotiated her lease. Due to the nature of Zwick's business, she routinely collected rent from her subtenants around the first of the month and remitted the rent to the Miller Company sometime later in the month. Zwick maintained that the Miller Company's express and implied representations along with its long-standing course of conduct led her to believe that her rent was not considered late if it was paid within the month it was due. Zwick was current in her lease payments as of
