You are in the middle of a lease that you can no longer afford, and you want to get out of it. Hello, I'm Robert Todd, and I'm here to answer the question: How to break a lease. Well, the first place to start is to look at the lease itself and read whether it has any releasing from the lease provisions, such as can you simply give a notice to vacate? Can you relet this lease to someone else? Can you sublease this lease to someone else? And if there aren't any provisions in the lease that allow you to do so, take a look at the statutes of the state in which you signed this lease to see if there are provisions such as leaving for military service or having to move for medical reasons or things of that nature. And failing that, you may consider contacting the individual or corporation with whom you have signed the lease to see if they will simply allow you to break the lease. If they do, you want to be sure and get whatever the agreement is that allows you to get out of the lease and have it reduced to writing and signed by both parties. I'm Robert Todd, and thank you for watching.
