i am on a 2 year lease, i can break after one year. I am six months in and i want to break the lease. My reasons for wanting to leave is mainly because my music disturbs my neighbors. And that doesnt augur well. Is there any other way i can get out of this lease?
Hi there. Thanks for your question, I will assist you with this.
Not usually, you can exercise the break clause and that's usually the only way of getting out of an otherwise valid lease I'm afraid.
so, i am stuck with the lease even though my neighbors complain everyday and there is no legal way of getting out.
and what are the consequesnces that i would face?
would that affect my chances of getting another lease or credit?
If you left early, then you're starting point is being liable for the balance rent until the break clause can be exercised.
But, if they find a tenant, paying the same rent, then in reality, there is no loss to the landlord and hence no claim.
I hope this answers your question. If so, please do rate the speed and quality of service by leaving me a rating. It only takes 1 second to do… If you would like more information, then please let me know and I shall do my best to help out! Thank you!
No, breaking the lease itself shouldn't affect anything. Only if he then sues, wins and gets judgment which you don't pay would this have any effect on you.
Thank you and good luck with this!
