Ending a Lease

Moving out of a rental property can be complicated if you are ending a lease.
Ending a lease can be complicated -it depends on the time remaining on the lease, the number of tenants, and whether the landlord is happy to terminate the lease early. Usually ending a lease early involves some extra costs for the tenant.

If leasing with friends and you wish to leave early, you may be responsible for finding a replacement tenant. You should seek permission from your landlord before doing this. Your name will usually remain on the lease until its end date. (For more information, see information on subletting ).

If the landlord is in breach of conditions of the lease, then you as a tenant may be able to terminate the lease early by following the procedure outlined in the lease. If you are considering this, you should seek legal advice first.
