Need Advice on How to Break Lease

Postby mbgolds » Tue May 20, 2003 6:23 pm

I need to move out a month before my lease ends. Can anyone give me advice on what to write to them? Should I request to be able to assign the lease to a new tenant or just inform them that I need to move out due to recent personal reasons? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I just faxed my landlord that due to personal circumstances beyond my control, I had to vacate before my lease was up (and I had 8 months left). They didn't say a word. If you have only a month left, I can't see them being TOO difficult... especially as they can raise the rent by 18% when you leave! WHOO-HOO!!!

Do I need to send the notification via certified mail or is regular mail fine?
