1St Lake Early Termination Agreement

A – You remain bound by the rental agreement, unless your lease provides for early termination due to job relocations. Some leasing contracts have a special section that deals with this issue, but many are not. For example, some leases allow for termination of the lease if you change positions at a location more than fifty miles away. Tenants sometimes want or have to break a lease. Breaking a rental agreement means terminating a rental agreement before its termination date. A lease is a mandatory contract between a landlord and a tenant. Maryland law requires a lease to limit late fees to 5% of a monthly rent, but in areas where the law does not impose limits, landlords and tenants can negotiate their own agreement. This also applies to the early termination of a lease. If a tenant wishes to break a lease that does not have a termination period, Maryland law only allows early termination of a lease in certain circumstances. These include certain situations where the continuation of the lease becomes a severe harshness for the tenant and certain situations in which the tenant has been summoned to military service. If you don`t meet any of these conditions, you can try negotiating an early cancellation contract with your landlord. THE MINISTER – You can always be liable for the shortfall.

Since few tenants are able to make the end of the lease coincide with the purchase of a home, you are responsible for the rent due for the rest of the lease, unless you reach an agreement with your landlord or there is a termination period in your rental agreement. However, the landlord must try in good faith to rent the property to someone else after you leave in order to reduce the amount of rental money the landlord loses. If the owner rents the property after your departure and before the expiry of your lease, you are responsible for the rental until the time of the new rental as well as for all costs incurred by the lessor as a result of the new rental of the property. These costs may include, for example, the cost of advertising. If new tenants do not pay their rent during the remaining period in your original lease, you may also be responsible for this shortfall. We offer an early termination contract if you need to withdraw from your apartment before your lease expires. Terms and conditions may apply, please contact your leasing office for details. Before you inform your landlord that you need to leave, carefully check your contract and see what options you might be available to you. For example, your landlord or leasing agent may have included in your contract a section on the steps to take to evacuate your unit before the contract expires. In some cases, you may have to pay an early cancellation fee, while in other scenarios, you could avoid all penalties if you can find a new tenant for the apartment.

If you have made the decision to clear your unit, your next steps will be heavily influenced by the language and terms of your lease agreement. . . .
