If your tenant needs to break the lease, but there is no early termination clause in your lease agreement, you need to create a lease supplement. An early termination supplement defines the rights and obligations of each party. If something like a job change, medical problem, or romantic breakup occurs, you can ask your landlord to break your lease. You can do this orally or formally with an early termination letter. If they say yes, you should get their written permission if there are future disputes. Federal, state, and local laws often protect certain classes and allow them to prematurely terminate a lease with little or no penalty. Not working with your tenant won`t look good to you if you ever show up before a judge. .
