Dear Resource Desk: My tenant got a job in another state and wants to terminate their lease early – it doesn’t expire until March 31, 2020. What are my options?
This is a pretty common scenario, and the answer is generally the same for most situations where a tenant is terminating early, regardless of circumstance (although there are some exceptions, such as military orders). If you’ve not written a specific “early termination clause” in to your lease (the RHAWA lease does not specify one), you have four basic options which you could consider.
