: Can someone please let me know if it is legal to break a lease because your job
: is transferring you to a new location? My buddy is moving back to NY city
: from Boston and he isn't sure if he'll be able to break his lease, especially
: since he is in the middle of his current lease. Can he give a certain amount of
: notice as well as written proof of his transfer which would prohibit the landlord
: from coming after him?
: Please reply via email as well.

Generally: no. Job relocation is not a reason to break a lease. It is sometimes a reason to sublet, then If LL refuses your subtenant, LL has broken the lease.
There is a very good section on MA L&T on TenantNet Home, including a link to a Boston lawyer's pages... http://tenant.net/index.html
