We have tenants that want to break their lease early. We have them for a 12 month lease and they have only been living in our unit since March 1st and it's mid July. My husband and I own a duplex in Indianapolis Indiana and live in one side and rent out the other. They want to purchase a new home and haven't made an offer on a home as of yet, so there is no definite move out date. We told them that once they have a moving date that we will start showing their place, but they will be responsible for their rent until we find a suitable renter. They said in so many words that they don't trust us and think that we are going to sit on the unit. Our tenants said that they want break their lease and pay us a months rent when they leave to help us out, that this is fair. My husband and I said that we want to stick with the lease and find a suitable renter, then our tenants threatened us saying that they have a lawyer and their lawyer said by law that they could sublet their unit if they wanted to. We have in our lease that it's at our soul discretion if they can sublet our not. My husband and I feel like we are being pushed into a corner. We do not know the subletting laws in the State of Indiana and what our options are with dealing with our tenants.Thank yo for your help.Joan

A couple months ago I signed a lease year and now I have to

A couple months ago I signed a lease for a year and now I have to move out. Reason I want to terminate the lease is b/c my girlfriend and I broke up b/c she cheated and now is dating another man. Also unfortunately she's on the lease so things are more complicated. The rental resides in Los Angeles. I want to know all the possible options I have to get out of the lease before I talk with the rental company on the phone. Also what should I be on the lookout for and how can I best protect myself so there aren't any serious reprocussions from the rental company.

My roommate wants to break our lease. she recently got

My roommate wants to break our lease. she recently got pregnant and wants to buy a house and not pay for a lease anymore. I don't mind breaking the lease, I'm just not willing to pay the money required to break the lease. the total amount to break the lease is 3400. she does not want to pay the total and therefore says i have to pay 1700 and she has to pay 1700. i find that that is a wast of money and do not want to pay that much to break the lease. she now says that if i do not pay to break the lease that she will not pay the rent therefore destroying both mine and her credit. how can i protect myself?
