Important to Know

  • If your landlord won't let you break your lease, you may be able to assign it to someone else for the rest of the lease term. In that case, use " Consent to Assignment of Residential Lease."
  • In most states, landlords must allow early termination of a lease under certain conditions. Examples include a tenant’s call to active military service or a tenant’s wish to move to a care facility.
