Frequently Asked Questions:

Can a tenant terminate before the end date of the lease?

Yes, a tenant can terminate before the end of the lease, but depending on how the lease is written, s/he may be liable for the remaining rent. A lease may permit the tenant to terminate at any time with notice. If the landowner defaults, as defined in the lease, this may constitute grounds for early termination without penalty to the tenant. See fact sheet “Termination…”.
