Are you looking for an early lease termination agreement? End your lease quick and easy with our early termination of lease letter.
First and foremost, the purpose of our free termination of lease agreement is to end a fixed term lease before its specified end date.
If you are ending a month of month lease, you should use our 30 day notice to vacate instead.
Tenants: You need the landlord's consent before you can terminate a fixed term lease. Get your landlord to sign this termination of lease letter as proof of consent.
If you break the lease or vacate the property without consent, you will have to continue paying rent until the landlord is able to find another tenant to sign a new lease.
Landlords: Similarly you need the tenant's permission to end a lease. You cannot terminate the lease unless the tenant has abandoned the property or you have a legal reason to evict the tenant.
If the other party is unwilling to end the lease, you can always try to entice them with a deal sweetener, such as offering to pay an early termination fee.
