How to write an early lease termination letter 298

Posted by ryan

I have been living in some apartments in Richmond for almost a year and half now, and the whole time I have been plagued with noisy neighbors due to both the inconsideration of said neighbors and the poor quality of the construction of the building. Rather than suffer through more sleepless nights and increasing blood pressure I finally decided to move – with one problem: my lease wasn’t up yet. Meaning I would need to break my lease early.

For those who know anything about apartment living you know that breaking a lease can be a difficult thing to pull off. Your lease will no doubt state harsh penalties for breaking the lease early (from a few month’s rent to the remaining rent owed as part of your lease). While you can try and argue with your landlord, the fact of the matter is that they’ve got you by the balls.

My (successful) approach was to write a very official and business-like letter to my property manager explaining in a stern but non-threatening way my reasons for wanting out. As I couldn’t find one of these document templates on the web when I was writing mine I thought it might be useful to some of you out there to see what worked for me. (names have been excluded and some adjustments may be needed – MS Word and OpenOffice versions attached after the letter below)




Dear [property manager name],

I am writing you to inform you that we wish to terminate our lease early due to the ongoing dissatisfaction with the quality of life provided to us by the [apartment name] apartments. While we have always been pleased with the cooperation and understanding of you and the apartment management to our situation, the fact remains that the environment in our apartment is substandard, specifically with regard to the noises generated by neighboring units. Our complaints, and those of other tenants, of this prohibitive conduct as specified in section 20 of the Apartment Lease Contract have not changed the situation nor have they provided the “peace and quiet enjoyment” the [apartment name] is committed to providing (Section 11, Rules and Regulations).

It is our desire to be released from our lease without fault on [desired early lease termination date]. You can expect our full cooperation in showing the apartment during our remaining occupation to facilitate its immediate rental and prevent the [apartment name] from any financial losses. I hope that our immediate rental payment history and good-standing account sufficiently indicates our continued accountability and sincerity.

Again, we appreciate all the attempts that you have done as property manager to alleviate our dissatisfaction but have decided that it is in both parties’ best interests for us to vacate the unit. Please let us know the feasibility of our request and if we can do anything to make the process proceed smoothly and to your satisfaction. Also, please let us know if you would like us to speak directly with any other management parties about our request.

Thank you, again, for the consideration.

Sincerely,

If your landlord doesn’t buy your attempt at the matter, I would think you have a few more options, all of escalating implications:

  1. Get a real estate lawyer to write a letter on your behalf (the letterhead alone may be worth more than the contents, so if you have an attorney friend it may be worth hitting them up for the favor)
  2. Contact the Better Business Bureau to try and resolve the situation. You may want to notify your property manager that this is a next step at some point – my guess is they won’t want this hassle and may be willing to cooperate.
  3. Slander the F* out of them on the internet. Do a search for apartment reviews and let others know your experiences. If you can’t get out of your situation, at least make sure others don’t suffer.

  14. AllieOctober 03, 2006 @ 10:08 AM
    Thank you for sharing this. I came across this while searching to find SOME way to terminate my apartment lease early. The situation I'm in is a little more drastic than yours, there was recently a shooting right outside my building and there is a man selling drugs out of his apartment downstairs. Ive told them about this situation numerous times and they've done nothing. There are no security cameras and the lighting is terrible. My boyfriends car has been broken into twice. I had no idea how to go with this and this is really great to read. thanks.
  15. Ryan DaigleOctober 03, 2006 @ 10:15 AM
    Allie - wow, that's definitely the most extreme situation I've heard of since posting this. I hope it serves your purpose and gets you out of the lease!

    Wow! This sample letter will help me and I am in a house in Australia. Thanks so much.
  17. RachaelOctober 21, 2006 @ 12:35 PM
    Thank you so much for this template. It was exaclty what I and my roommate were looking for. We are the only 2 female graduate students in an apartment complex of 14 other males who party contiuously. We can get nothing done (and as I type this, they just turned on their music loudly!) My roommate was in tears this morning not being able to sleep. They know by now that we are the ones filing the complaints and that we are the reason the police have been here. So we now fear for our safety. We will send this in...we hope we may not have to pay any money to our landlord and can perhaps find someone to take our place..but...sigh...I'm going to cry..
  18. Ryan DaigleOctober 21, 2006 @ 12:46 PM
    Best of luck to you, Rachel. Let me know how it goes...

    Thank you so much for the letter. I have been looking for a way to get out of my lease since the only other occupants of the building are dealing drugs. I mentioned it to my landlord and he said it wasn't his problem to call the police. I later learned that he is friends with the father of these people. Once again, thanks!!!

  27. AndrewMarch 19, 2007 @ 01:43 AM

    Hey, I’m wondering what I should do if I just want to get out of my contract because I have a better deal? I can rent in a nicer place for less than half of what I pay here… but obviously I don’t want to just tell my landlord that. Any suggestions? I was under the impression that it was fairly easy to terminate a lease early, but the landlord just keeps your security deposit.

    Any help soon would be greatly appreciated!

  28. RosanaMarch 29, 2007 @ 12:22 PM

    Gracias! I’m moving back home and I need to move out of my apt ASAP. This is just what I needed. Fingers crossed!

    Thanks for the sample letter, it was just what I was looking for. Thanks for posting this and helping others suffering from the same situations!!

  30. LisaApril 09, 2007 @ 09:30 PM

    You know the saying, you catch more flies with honey… As a landlord, I wish our former tenants would have just been upfront with us about needing to get out of their lease early. If they would have, we could have advertised and probably gotten new tenants to move in when they left, costing them nothing, but instead we are losing out on rent because they just left without telling us. It is going to hurt them in the long run, because we may end up taking them to court, where they will be responsible for not only back rent but also legal fees and penalties. I’m sorry for everyone who has unreasonable landlords but many are understanding when you are polite and honest. Ryan is right though, legally, you are pretty much “stuck” unless you have a situation like Allie or Rachael above… you are entitled to reasonable enjoyment and safety of your property and if you clearly aren’t getting that you have legal recourse to get out of your lease. Good luck to all.

  31. Ryan DaigleApril 10, 2007 @ 08:39 AM

    Lisa – great to hear a perspective from the other side of the equation. I agree that it’s best to be civil and professional when dealing with a situation like this – reverting to accusatory and argumentative behavior will get you nowhere.

  32. thankfulApril 14, 2007 @ 11:48 AM

    Hi Ryan,

    Thanks for the letter. My lease has been up for almost a year and told my landlord I was looking to move in the future not 1 yr later; and have been living month to month. I gave my word that even though he knows I am looking and my intent to move that I would give him a 30 day notice when the time came. I was not sure on how to write the letter; but thanks to your sample I have a good start. This landlord have been very kind and understanding with us so he deserve the time to place a good family in the home. We would stay but because I fell and injured myself it has become a hardship for my family. Thankful in Barrow County Ga

  33. LannetteApril 17, 2007 @ 08:18 PM

    I want to thank you so much for your help. We have had a similair situation, however with Mice since we moved into this townhome. As the Landlord, and managment have been good with trying to take care of the problem, it still exsist. Our situation is that we just moved here from another state and signed a 8 month lease while looking for our own home. I have spoken to him and well the fact is that we will be penalized. I searched and searched until I came accross your letter. It was very well written, and I am so grateful that you are so willing to share your letter, as well as knowledge with the rest of the world. KARMA….you will get it in return. Thank you again.

  34. JacquesApril 30, 2007 @ 12:18 AM

    I have a question for anyone that may have experienced this issue… I was on a 12 month lease and fulfilled 6 months on time. Unfortunately, I lost my job and contacted the property manager and asked if I could terminate my contract. He verbally agreed and asked that I just provided him with a 30 days notice. As a result of his kindness, I asked that he kpet my security deposit. After moving out (well before the 30 days given), I receive a nasty call from the new owner of the property demanding over $11,900 dollars in rent. I informed him of my arrangement with the previous property manager and said ” I dont care, I have you on a lease and you owe me the amount in full.” Furthermore, he said he would hold off on renting the apartment in order to hold me respomsible for the full amount. The previous property manager told me he had forwarded applications for the apartment on the day they closed escrow (4/27/07). After going back and forward, he agreed to release any responsability if I pay him $5,000.00. Is he trying to extort me at this point? Does my previous verbal agreement with the previous apartment manager even matter? Is imy verbal agreement with the previous apartment managert considered a binding agreement? I am now out of a job, with a wife and two children. I need some advise soon.

    Thanks,

    Jacques, you could try finding a sublettor for your apartment, as long as your lease doesn’t prohibit you from doing so. Also, in California at least, it looks like the damages the landlord can get from you are limited to an amount that you can prove could not be reasonably avoided. I think this means that if you can show it’s reasonable that the landlord can re-rent your unit within a certain time period, then you’re only obligated to pay for the un-rented time. (I’m not a lawyer, so you’ll have to check your State’s code or ask a lawyer.) Your State might also have code that specifically protects unemployed people from unreasonable rental fees such as this.

    Of course, everybody should remember that leases are fundamentally wrong. I have about 5 or 6 reasons formally written down, but basically they sum up to this: if you own and live in a house, you can sell it at any time, perhaps with a reasonable cost for cleaning and such, and move, as long as it has value in the market; but a lease allows a landlord to extort money from renters and prohibit them from moving about freely, even though the apartment ostensibly has value, and could be re-rented with a minimal cost, just like a house owner selling a house. Landlords complain that it’s a hardship to have to re-rent an apartment. But if it’s such a great apartment, then a renter should be inspired to stay there. So if renters keep moving, it’s probably really because the apartment is overpriced compared to its value in the market. Leases are a device used to inflate prices of rental property, and to maintain rental housing as an industry, as a profit-making business, extorting money out of those less fortunate, rather than to allow housing to be a basic, compassionate good, like food, clothing, and healthcare. Remember: the fundamental purpose of rental housing is to take advantage of you. That being said, every renter should boycott leases, but almost none of you ever have the backbone to stand up for anything.

  42. NaiJuly 16, 2007 @ 10:07 PM

    Thanks Ryan. Your letter was so helpful I got a reaction from my landlord but no word if they will return my security deposit.

  43. RobynJuly 18, 2007 @ 10:21 AM

    Thank you for the info. I just moved 2 1/2 weeks ago to an apt in Huntintington Beach Ca. When I looked at the place in the day everything seemed fine but now that I’m in I never realized the hell it would become. My main complaint is smokers. Its summer & I moved from Las Vegas. While it is quite a bit cooler here,but its still a bit hot for me being used to air conditioning which my new place has none. I have fans in all the windows which I am getting used to. However I never have had this problem in over 25 years of renting. The building where I live has 24 units facing each other about 20 feet distance (12 on each side, 2 story) All night long (6 pm, 9pm 10 pm , 10:30, 12:00 am , 2:20 am , 5 am 6 am!!!!) people go out in front of their apartments and smoke. My windows are open to get air and the fans just suck in the smoke. With the windows closed you still smell it & its too hot anyways. I cannot sleep!!!!! Worse yet I have acute sinusitis & my son (who is 5) has Asthma. I’ve counted at least 8 people that I have eye witnessed smoking near my place. I spoke with the manager who was sympathetic and said she would speak to people and suggested I speak to them. I spoke with some of the people and they were nice but they still smoke in front of their unit anyway. She also told me of a unit coming available with only 3 others around it and she could not guarantee that they don’t smoke but there is nothing else around it so it would be better. Although it will be a huge hassle to move again , I think it will be best. She said she would speak to corporate about the other apt. but the guy told her absolutely not, no transfers. I asked to speak to the “corporate person” & she gave me the number but he won’t return my calls. In my lease there is a warning due to Proposition 65 stating that there are chemicals known to cause cancer in the state of california in this building incuding but not limited to car emissions, bbq’s, and second hand smoke. Yes, I read it but I figured that it was this required legal blanket statement. My situation I feel is accessive. I called Legal aid and they said that I could write a letter giving 30 days notice due to my inability to have “private enjoyment”, state the issues and attempts I’ve made to make them aware of the situation (phone calls, letters, talks with manager etc) and that the apartment is not habitible. They explained that this would hold up in court since it will more than likely go to court in that I will need to take them to small claims for my money back ( they made me pay 3 months in advance to move in!!! I will be fighting for 1 month at least and my deposit also they told me that I could sue for moving expenses too. So it will be a long drawn out battle which is awful yet there is a chance that they may let me move into the other unit if I push it enough. Wish me luck! and thanks for your template & website!

    Ryan, Thankyou for the help with writing this letter, we are as of today turning in our 30 notice of terminating our lease 5 months early from Hidden Lakes Apartments in Clarkston, Michigan. Like many above they entice you with all the sweetness to get you to sign with there apartments but after the fact it is pure hell. We are dealing with Black Mold, Breeds of Dogs that shouldnt be here and the fact that my health is on the line with regimens of Immune Suppressents to try to stop a disease that is causing me to loose my vision. I have letters from my doctors but I just know how our management team works. Thanks Again… You are Wonderful!

  45. TessaAugust 15, 2007 @ 02:36 PM

    Thank you so much! My boyfriend and I had no choice but to move into this apartment complex, but after six months, we have come to realize that this is not a diserable place to live. We have found a much nicer and much SAFER apartment complex, and can’t wait to leave this place. This will help a lot. Good luck to you all that having problems.

  46. aBellAugust 31, 2007 @ 04:32 PM

    Thanks Ryan!

    Like others have said, you are the only link out here who really provides a letter for terminating your lease. I appreciate you!

    Ryan thank you for this letter set-up this will really come in handie God Bless you!

    Ryan…interesting website and letter…

    I am a landlord and was shocked when circumstances required me to become a renter after 20 years. It was hell. The smoker upstairs, the noise, the lack of privacy and then, having to deal with management was awful. The worst part, I tried talking to attorneys and found out that renters have little recourse in the case of leases and my responsiblilities were no different than if I had purchased the home (i.e., fixing the dishwasher myself, being threatened to fix the range due to a light that would not turn off etc… ) and having the option of finding a replacement renter with approved references and simultaneously being informed by management that the rent would be increased $500 for any new renter!

    Since then I bought a house and I had a leak that had ruined a section of hardwood floor in my kitchen. My thought: it was a far better situation to be in than ever trying to deal with uncaring and inhumane people. I hope to NEVER have to rent again…

    Scott

    P.S. I am still a landlord and as long as I get my rent, I leave the people alone…and even do some maintainence myself…

    Ryan,

    I feel like I am in a no win situation, my husband and I leased an aparment in St. Clair Shores, MI with a third party rental agency and now my husband and I are on the brink of divorce. I explained to the rental agency that without my husband I am not able to afford the apartment and he is not able to afford the apartment with me. We had to pay them $1800 security deposit which I should have known better but I needed to move right away because my lease was coming up at my previous apartment. I asked them about sub-leasing the apartment out and they said that they would have to still go through the same process as we did and we would have to pay them over $300.00 for a one time fee. I asked could I lease the apartment out for less and I pay the difference but they said no. I don’t know what to do, I want to just move out but I am afraid of the consequences and I tried talking to lawyers but they too said that I was in a no win situation. I appreciate your letter but I don’t think that it would help in my situation.

    I too am in Richmond, I moved here a little over a year ago from New York and got stuck in this apartment. I wanted out so bad that I was willing to take the penalty. Then I found your letter, its excellent. I hope it works out.

  52. jenNovember 09, 2007 @ 01:14 PM

    thank you so much for this information! i am drafting my letter right now and this one is excellent. wow i am amazed at how many people absolutely hate their living conditions.

  57. MishelleDecember 08, 2007 @ 03:36 PM

    I am plagued with a similiar situation in that my apartment has paper thin walls. Couple this with the fact that my upstairs neigbors have 3 children under the age of five. The kids are allowed to run, jump and shout all hours of the day and through out the night and predawn hours. I’ve talked to them about it, as well as called the landlord and mailed certified letters but the noise continues. I was about to terminate my lease early, ruin my credit and rental history until I found your letter which is like a God send. God Bless You and Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!

  58. Cecilia December 11, 2007 @ 03:03 PM

    I will use this letter and hope i will be able to get out of my Lease. Thank You

    My son is in a very poor situation. He leased an apartment with his girlfriend for 1 year.They argue so much that I begged him not to go in a lease with her. He was so determined to be out on his own, that he did it anyways. Now the relationship is so bad, that he wants out. He cannot make it there on his own so he wants to try to get out of it. This is in Harrison Twp., Mi. Do you think he has a chance? This whole thing is making me crazy.

  63. badsituationJanuary 10, 2008 @ 05:53 PM

    I am in a very bad situation, and I don’t think your letter will work, but at this point, I am willing to try anything….. (Maybe someone has advise) I have to have surgery in a couple weeks, and my lease isn’t up until May of this year…. I live in Southern California, and the complex I am at is pretty strick….. I will not be able to work, therefore, I will not be able to pay, so I am moving home. I don’t know how to get out of this lease, and I can’t sublease to anyone, per the terms of the lease agreement. HELP!

  64. MarleneJanuary 24, 2008 @ 10:01 AM

    Thank you so much!! I am not in a particularly bad situation, I just had to move to another area (distance issue). Well, I am so glad that I read this because it gave me an idea on how to construct my own letter to management. What’s the best part is that although I am losing my security deposit, they will not charge me the remaining amount on the lease (9 months of rent). Your website is a gem!

  65. C BrownJanuary 29, 2008 @ 08:47 AM

    Ryan, thanks so much for this information. I needed a letter to write to my apt complex because I just can’t stay there another month and I only have one month left, so I found another place and have intentions of leaving before the end of Feb.

  68. APMarch 14, 2008 @ 07:45 PM

    I believe my apartment manager and maintainence are stealing from my apartment and I need out. My lease says it begins in december, but i moved in in november and i was told it was a 6mths lease but on my lease it says 12-7.

    you are very kind to do this for everyone out there that has a bad landlrod and/or bad neigbors. Thanks .

  70. Mrs. TMarch 23, 2008 @ 12:55 AM

    Thank you so much for this template. I have had noise problems with my neighbor upstairs since day 1. I have complained on the phone, in person, and by certified mail. The noise stopped… briefly. This woman leaves about the time my husband and I go to bed and comes home around 3 or 4 am being very noisy and stomping around for a few hours. He and I both get up fairly early. It drives me insane and I don’t do well when my sleep is disturbed. I have 4 months left on my 6 month lease and I am giving my 30 day notice, I just wasn’t sure how to compose my letter. Thank you so much for sharing yours! I only hope it works…

  71. JulieMarch 26, 2008 @ 02:09 PM

    I need someones advise, I am sort of in the same situation as some of these people, but I am in a rent to own lease for 1 year. Just learning now that there is a guy that lives across the street from me and is a pedofile. Who has just recently been in trouble for trying to solicit sex to a minor child. I am worried about my children being approached by this gentlemen. Any advise on how to terminate lease early without being penalized? Obviously I will not purchase the house at the end of my lease, but want to break my lease now instead of 4 months from now.

  72. TinaMarch 26, 2008 @ 09:32 PM

    I found this letter a really helpful first step. Unfortunately for me the management thinks my apartment complex is really upscale and doesn’t think that its wrong that you can hear everything and I mean everything your upstairs neighbor does. As I write this he is stomping across the floor and throwing things around. He keeps us up all hours of the night and living here is worse than living with my parents, they tell me what I can have on my patio and when I can take my trash out. He had a female freind over and the bedsprings were creaking and my kids were scared the ceiling was going to cave in and they don’t feel safe here my 5 yr old would rather sleep in his car seat in our van than sleep in our apt. We found a pre-paid legal service and got connected to a lawyer thru them and I feel a lot better. We have found a new place and will be moving soon and then we will have some very nice landlords!

  75. EricMarch 31, 2008 @ 01:25 PM

    This letter seems very helpful and it is great to read that other people out there have the same problems as I do. I recently moved across the country and into my own apartment. It seemed like a great place till things started going wrong with everything. I had a leak above my shower that was like a waterfall coming through the ceiling and all they did was put a new piece of drywall over it and didn’t even finish it. Then I have had the circuit breaker for the whole apartment shut off multiple times and this last time was the worst since I was gone for the weekend and all the food I just purchased in my fridge went bad. I don’t know if that is enough to get out of a lease early but I really need to get out. Anyone have any suggestions on something I can do. It is up in July but I need out now. Thanks in advance to anyone who has any ideas?

  76. michelleApril 07, 2008 @ 02:16 PM

    thank you for this letter. my situation is similar to all of yours, when i read them, it makes me feel sooo bad that another person has to experience the hell of a bad neighbor. why cant all of them move into together!

    but hopefully, this can get me out of my lease. thanks again!!!

  77. TiffanyApril 17, 2008 @ 06:13 PM

    What have the outcomes been for all of your situations? I am curious because I am contemplating an attempt to terminate my lease by I fear they will decline and I will be stuck here with an even more awkward relationship between us and the management.

  87. CandySeptember 16, 2008 @ 07:20 PM

    I am in a horrible situation, I don’t know what to do. I’ve just rented a townhouse/condo unit on Sept. 1st 2008 and signed a one year lease. It’s only been 2 1/2 weeks and I’ve hated every single day so far. The previous tenant had 2 little dogs that urinated all over the carpets and kitchen area which I had no idea of. I knew the previous owner had dogs but I thought after cleaning the place thoroughly the smell would go away. How about no! I have used all sorts of cleaning products and I can’t even invite friends over or cook because it’s too embarrassing. I have been eating out everyday and now I feel sick every time I walk in the apartment. I was all excited about getting a new place and now I’m horrified. I have sleepless nights and all I think about is how to get out of this lease. My main concern is finding out how to get my security deposit of $3000.00 back! Go figure! I know it’s alot but it was 2 month’s advance rent and last months rent. Although the landlord did get the carpets professionally cleaned, it still smells, the urine must have settled way beneath the carpet and the wood surrounding the carpet…now she say’s there is nothing she can do. On top of that the faucet in the bath tub has decided to grow legs and fall off and the toilet is clogged. The landlord failed to mention to me that this is an ongoing problem. If anyone knows what I can do even to get some of my money back please let me know, I am willing to suck it up and stay for 3 more months to make up for the 3 months advance rent if the landlord agrees. Should I make this offer to her, maybe in the letter format above???

  103. BonDecember 30, 2008 @ 06:23 PM

    Ryan, Great letter-Many years ago I used to be a leasing agent for a large apartment complex near Cleveland, Ohio. I would not hesitate to let you out of a lease with a letter like that. Now I am looking for an example letter to get out of a “home” lease on the grounds that my husband was let go of his job due to the economy and we have to move back in the in-laws :( You would think me being in the business years ago that it would come naturally to me to write a termination letter, but as you know times are tight these days and wording is very important . Thanks, you gave me some ideas and lit my light-bulb.

  104. Thanks Ryan!January 22, 2009 @ 03:38 PM

    Very much appreciate your knowledge on this matter! You are right, there is no other example source on the internet!

  105. johnJanuary 24, 2009 @ 11:52 PM

    it came across to your website while i was searching for early termination letter, its a great letter that i would store in my dictionary book and keep it in a safe place. however my case is slightly different, i signed a lease agreement for 5 year contract to start a new business, unfortunately my business did not do well and it’s been 2 year I keep more and more throwing money to pay a very high rent. I am bleeding very pain right now even more due to economic slowdown. I have talked to the management that i want to get out and even show to them all the bank statement versus operation cost, He said I have to honor the lease agreement or else have to pay fine. Temporarily the manager would consider for a half down rental fee for the reason to lighten our burden. and will review every quarterly. BUT I just want to get out. I have no idea how to write to convince them to let me go without fine. any help / advice would be highly appreciated.

  106. EmilyJanuary 28, 2009 @ 01:50 PM

  113. VeganFebruary 26, 2009 @ 03:55 PM

    Thanks Ryan but unfortunately everybody says you can’t away with breaking a lease. I moved 5 months ago and before I moved I checked the place for noisy neighbors etc.but after I moved in I found out the tenant above me is an “actor “therefore he sleeps during day and stays awake at night making my life miserable .He drags things and paces back and forth until 2-3 am .Let alone the porn sounds I have to put up with when the “visitors” come.I contacted management but they only sent him a letter, i also spoke with him but it only makes it worst. What happened in your case?

  114. HiMarch 02, 2009 @ 09:42 PM

    Simple and good

  115. Stephanie March 04, 2009 @ 10:03 PM

My situation involves rodents running and squeaking between the walls, and they don’t sound small. I am currently sleep deprived and frustrated, but I hope to make this letter my own, and post good news. God bless all renters, and the good landlords, because this truly is not easy.

    TOWNHOUSE MANAGEMENT in the BRONX: 880 River Ave, Bronx, NY Property Manager: Willie Miranda are full of shit. They rent out apartments that look good for a month then fall apart. Billy Biaggi the super is a nut case! The buildings are really half way houses for drug addicts and immigrants. BEWARE!!!!

  124. ReneeJune 10, 2009 @ 10:29 AM

    Cheers Ryan, this is awesome, it’s given me something to work with =)

    Unlike many of the other situations mentioned, our situation isn’t all that terrible.. we simply need more room to live.. we’re currently in a 1.5 bedroom unit in south aus, we’re in month 7 of our current 12 month lease.. (me, my partner and our 2 year old)

    We initially moved in when our lillun was 5 months and to be honest we’re now ready to tear our hair out purely due to our girl needing room to move, being the active 2 year old she is.. and us needing room to have the distance to regenerate our sanity.. the neighbours are lovely.. the place is safe and secure.. it’s just simply not ample anymore..

    We hope to use the Section 20 agreement and emphasise our enjoyment of the property has become substandard..

    Many thanks for your inspiration.. I have bookmarked this page and will certainly advise of the outcome.. =)

    I moved to Colorado back in April from PA need to go back home due to the fact my dad is sick with cancer, I lived in my condo for 2 months is there any way I can get out of my lease due to this unforseen circimstance? I live paycheck to paycheck and do not have extra money to pay a portion of the lease.

  128. msgSeptember 09, 2009 @ 08:42 PM

    hello ryan, i have the same prob, but i am the landlord!!! yeah go figure. i am looking for a template on how to terminate their lease since all the husband does is yell & call her wife mean names. unfortunately, i’ve only give him verbal warnings….i am up to my ying-yang & i have to do some actions….. thanks, i may be able to use ur template!

  129. jesSeptember 09, 2009 @ 09:24 PM

    Ryan thank you so much!!! I am only 20 years of age and had no idea how to go about doing this until now. I really appreciate the format you have, it definetly helps alont. Atleast this way they will know I know a little something (even though I really don’t lol )and this will not be an easy battle for them!!! This was great!!!

  130. HadiyaSeptember 23, 2009 @ 11:00 AM

    Very good word choice, I will use some of the information and add some more to mine. Because it wasnt the noise level just the cost.

  131. shineSeptember 24, 2009 @ 01:24 AM

    Good wordings and reason for terminate the lease

  132. KoreanOctober 05, 2009 @ 03:04 PM

    I am going to try this and I will let you know the outcome. I recently moved into ‘what is supposed to be’ a kind-of upscale neighborhood in Atlanta ‘where you pay for the location’. Since we moved in 2 months ago, we have constantly been bitten by ants and finally discovered a hole in my bedroom when there were litterally thousands (no exageration) of ants in my room 30 minutes after setting a bowl of turkey salad down to have a conversation with my daughter one day. ‘I have pictures’. The ants formed a trail at that point instead of just being scattered all over the place and the trail led us to the hole in the wall. Keep in mind that this complex is only 5 years old. On top of that, I have light switch fixtures that are leaking water as well as the vent in my ceiling. The light fixture leaks enough to puddle the carpet underneath. The HVAC unit drips constantly (and loudly) and when it finally overflows, the carpet in my hallway is wet. I have been told that that’s normal. They also keep telling me that there is no hazzard with water coming from electrical fixtures. I’m kinda having a hard time believing that. So between the constant biting, itching, wet socks and the fear of blowing up, I don’t think I want 10 more months of this. Wish me luck!

  133. appreciate thisOctober 06, 2009 @ 05:51 PM

    Thank you this has really helped me.

  134. KristieOctober 07, 2009 @ 05:31 PM

    OMG – This is PERFECT!! I’m going through the EXACT same thing at this moment! This letter is very well-written. The only problem is, our property manager has already spoken to her regional manager and they won’t let us out of the lease without paying the termination fee. I will try the Better Business Approach, and I already plan on slandering the hell out of them in the online reviews. Thank you!!

  135. DonnaOctober 22, 2009 @ 09:55 AM

    I’ve taken the more vicious route by posting bad reviews and ratings of this apartment online =)

I am renting in a commercial bldg which I have an Internet cafe, It was ok the income for a year but this is my second contract started july 2009 unfortunately the business has slow down coz of the typhoon that happen to my country that destroy most of my people’s business even so I wasn’t affected material things but my business was coz of people cannot recover so soon and mostly the school situated at my area have moved out the building also because of the high rental of the building and I cannot afford to continue anymore coz we are not making any money at all. so I need to make sure that they will consider my business situation. please help and it would be much appreciated if you could write me a proper letter for my landlord.

    hi there.

    I am not sure how “early lease termination letter” work

    I heard that if I terminate the lease early, then could landlord report to credit report? (what i mean is that I am afraid if i end my lease earlier, landlord could report to “credit” report (or something.) then it could affect on our future. (is that true?)

  153. WISEGIRLFebruary 10, 2010 @ 02:18 PM

    Dear Ryan, Thank you so much for posting this! I needed to make my letter more polite and I hadn’t thought to quote the sections of the lease.

    There is a copy of what I think is my final copy of the letter I’m going to use on my web page if other want to use it. Don’t know how to put in that my neighbor’s base is vibrating my apartment yet though (it’s separate from the volume).

    Thanks Ryan.I thought I was the only one with concerns of breaking a lease.I to,figured it’s worth a shot to be somewhat civil about things.I recently lost my job of 14 years and can no longer afford the rent.I tried talking with the manager and she said there is no way to reduce it.So I have moved my stuff out to another apartment that is obviously cheaper and will copy my termination paper and my unemployment benefit amount and attach it with my letter (just to show it’s all legit).I will have 8 months left of my lease so I know what I’m facing,legal wise.Maybe the complex owners will have some understanding to the situation.Megan.

    Dear Ryan:

    Thank you….Thank you….Thank you. Today is Friday, 813/10 and is my lucky day. I have just been released from my lease thanks to your letter.

    This place has been a nightmare, fights, very loud music, drugs, etc. There has been a recent attempt to break into my apt.

    Thanks to you I can now move and sleep at night.

    God Bless you.

    Thank you so much for sharing this letter-very helpful. Right now I am in a situation where I signed a lease about 2 months ago and I share (or thought there would be no problem sharing) a bathroom with two other tenants. One tenant has some hygiene issues and I no longer feel comfortable. This is my first leasing experience (it is a one bedroom flat), however, I am totally alone with this and am a bit worried about how to tell the landlord about my concern (which is apparently also shared by the third not-so-nice tenant who for some reason feels obliged to clean up after this other inconsiderate tenant) and was and still am uncertain about which angle to take this to the landlord with: would it be better to try to terminate the one year lease early or attempt to sublet? Initially, even in the advert for the apartment and in an email correspondence, the landlord emphasized how there is no ‘early termination of the lease’. Any advice? Would greatly appreciate it. If I take it from a subletting angle, do I need to be formal and specific about why I want to leave? Also, I am a student, if that has any significance. Thank you. Best wishes.

    Thanks for the eloquently worded letter. Has anyone ever gotten a reduction in rent? If I had known many things that I believe were hidden I wouldn’t have rented here. Pools were hut the entire summer,It is supposed to be safe and gated. Gates have not worked for months. Probably because there were so many robberies, Tire slashing. The lighting is unsafe in many spots. If you report something that needs to be repaired it takes raising hell to get it fixed. Some items have not been repaired Since I moved in March 26. Apts are in foreclosure so they don’t care in the least. If I wanted an apt. with no pool, and no security then I could have got one for a lot less. I want to pay less. Any chances. ?? Anyone been through a similar situation ?? The lease pretty much screws you But I was misrepresented to. HELP ! !

  171. ohio renterOctober 03, 2010 @ 05:55 PM

    Thanks for the outline. I like the part about “feasibility”. I’ve been living in my apt for 5 years, great location w/decent rent. Everything was ok until about a year ago. The kitchen flooded due to remodeling upstairs and since then the place has been going to crap and I was even broken into and robbed!

    To add confusion the landlord has changed 3 times.

    I’m ready to go. Just isn’t home anymore you know?

    Ryan,

    My husband and I used your letter as a frame and wrote a six page request to our landlord, which, he accepted! We had expected him to put up a fight, and we may still have to quibble about the details of getting back our security deposit, but we’re on our way to our next apartment! Thanks for your help!

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (2005): http://awesomemovies.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/cover_big21.jpg Harry Potter has a dream about an event while it takes place. He sees an elderly man, Frank Bryce, investigate a light that is shining in the house he looks after and overhears Lord Voldemort making plans with Peter Pettigrew and another man that Harry does not recognize. The caretaker is caught and murdered by the Dark Lord. Ron Weasley and Hermione Granger express concern over Harry’s dreams. The Quidditch World Cup allows Harry to take his mind off his nightmares. However, followers of Voldemort known as Death Eaters terrorize and destroy the spectators’ campsites after the match. At Hogwarts, headmaster Albus Dumbledore introduces Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody as the new Defence Against the Dark Arts teacher, unaware that Barty Crouch Jr has previously subdued Moody and is now using Polyjuice Potion to impersonate him. Dumbledore also announces that the school will host the Triwizard Tournament, in which one wizard from each of the three magic schools competes in three difficult tasks. The champions are selected by the Goblet of Fire, a magical cup into which the names of candidates are placed. Cedric Diggory is chosen to represent Hogwarts, Quidditch champion Viktor Krum is chosen to represent Durmstrang Institute, and Fleur Delacour is selected to represent Beauxbatons Academy of Magic. The goblet unexpectedly chooses a fourth champion, Harry. As Harry is underage and therefore should have been ineligible to compete, Hogwarts teachers and fellow students alike are suspicious. In their first Defence Against the Dark Arts lesson, the students learn of the three Unforgivable Curses. The Imperius Curse causes absence of free will, the Cruciatus Curse causes unbearable torture, and the final curse, Avada Kedavra, causes death. In the first task, each of the four champions are instructed to retrieve a golden egg guarded by a dragon. Moody advises Harry about which talent he should use to overcome the dragon, and the two ultimately decide upon flying. Harry summons his broomstick and retrieves the egg, which contains information about the second challenge. They are soon informed of the Yule Ball, a Christmas ball held during the Triwizard Tournament. Ron and Harry find it hard to get dates to the ball, but finally get the Patil twins to join them, while Hermione goes with Viktor Krum, stunning everyone with her suddenly beautiful appearance at the ball. Ron is so jealously enraged at seeing Hermione with Krum (formerly his idol) that he attacks her and accuses her of “fraternizing with the enemy”. The ensuing argument leaves Hermione in tears. After Christmas, in exchange for previous aid, Cedric Diggory provides him with a clue that prompts him to open the egg underwater. With help from Moaning Myrtle, he learns that the second task entails the retrieval of “something precious” to each of the competitors from mermaids in the nearby Black Lake. In last-minute preparation for the task, long-time friend Neville Longbottom provides Harry with Gillyweed, which allows him to breathe underwater. Harry is the first to arrive at the location, and finds Ron, Hermione, Cho Chang and Fleur’s sister, Gabrielle Delacour, in suspended animation. Finishing last in an attempt to free all four at once, Harry is awarded second place for “outstanding moral fiber.” Following an exchange with Mad Eye Moody, Ministry official Barty Crouch, Sr. appears confused and troubled. Harry finds him dead shortly after the second task. While waiting in Dumbledore’s office, Harry’s curiosity leads him to look into Dumbledore’s pensieve, causing him to revisit one of Dumbledore’s memories. He witnesses a trial before the Wizengamot (Wizard Court) in which captured Death Eater Igor Karkaroff, the current headmaster of Durmstrang, denounces a number of Death Eaters, including both Severus Snape and Barty Crouch Jr. While Dumbledore vouches for Snape’s integrity, Crouch Sr. is horrified at this revelation and disowns his son, sending him to Azkaban. Upon returning to reality, Dumbledore tells Harry that he is searching his memories for a clue as to why extraordinary events have taken place at Hogwarts since the start of the Triwizard Tournament. While walking the halls Harry is confronted by Snape, who believes Harry has stolen the ingredients for Polyjuice Potion, by which a person can change their appearance. In the Triwizard Cup’s third and final task, the four competitors are placed inside a large hedge maze, the challenge being to reach the cup first. Viktor Krum, acting under the Imperius curse, incapacitates Delacour and attempts to do the same to Cedric. Harry stops Cedric from attacking Krum, and the two run for the cup. When Cedric is trapped by WALL-E (2008): http://awesomemovies.org/wp-content/uploads/2011/01/walle.jpg In a distant, but not so unrealistic future, where mankind has abandoned earth because it has become covered with trash from products sold by the powerful multi-national Buy N Large corporation, WALL-E, a garbage collecting robot has been left to clean up the mess. Mesmerized with trinkets of Earth’s history and show tunes, WALL-E is alone on Earth except for a sprightly pet cockroach. One day, Eve, a sleek (and dangerous) reconnaissance robot, is sent to Earth to find proof that life is once again sustainable. WALL-E falls in love with Eve. WALL-E rescues Eve from a dust storm and shows her a living plant he found amongst the rubble. Consistent with her “directive” Eve takes the plant and automatically enters a deactivated state except for a blinking green beacon. WALL-E, doesn’t understand what has happened to his new friend, but true to his love, he protects her from wind, rain, and lightning, even as she is unresponsive. One day a massive ship comes to reclaim Eve, but WALL-E, out of love or loneliness hitches a ride on the outside of the ship to rescue Eve. The ship arrives back at a large space cruise ship, which is carrying all of the humans who evacuated Earth 700 years earlier. The people of Earth ride around this space resort on hovering chairs which give them a constant feed of TV and video chatting. They drink all of their meals through a straw out of laziness and/or bone loss, and are all so fat that they can barely move. When the auto-pilot computer, acting on hastily given instructions sent many centuries before, tries to prevent the people of Earth from returning, by stealing the plant, WALL-E, Eve, the portly captain, and a band of broken robots stage a mutiny.

    My family and I were also trying to break the lease earlier than anticipated because of bad neighbors. The appartment is nice, so is the landlord, it’s just that we are really dissatisfied with the conditions here, so I think that the information and termination letter that you shared in the article above is really going to help us.

I am trying to terminate my Lease since I am buying my own home. I am doing it all alone since I am a single mom. It’s hard enough to come up with a down payment for the house and now my landlord explained that I will need to pay two months ($1,900.00) plus a $600 Penalty. It discouraged me since money doesn’t come easy, but all the comments above about Lanlords, inflation and contracts inspires me even more to push foward and buy a house. I know that the Letter will not save me from these fees, but atleast I can be professional and sweet as I edit the Template you shared with all of us. I truly appreciate it and I wish everyone above the best in their situations.

    Wow, great advice. I was forwarded this information from a relative and very helpful as I too am suffering from very noisy, inconsiderate neighbors. I have also had meetings with the noisy tenant and the managers and NO HELP! Hopefully, I can move at somepoint. Again, thank you.

    Many of us don’t know how to write termination letter properly and for that most of cases they face a trouble position before anyone.I think it’s a great problem.So to get rid of this I think this post is too helpful.We have also opened an organization named after nanny qualifications to give the people right idea about it

    Cool, this is perfect. If you like a short hairstyle, definitely consider and discuss it with your hairstylist but do not be hell bent to get that particular one because you might not look good with it since any hairstyle that you get should underline and accentuate the good features of your face and draw least attention towards the not-so-good features of your face.

  274. JaybirdMarch 20, 2012 @ 06:23 PM

    Hi Ryan… thank you for this letter template. My situation is similar to what people have been experiencing in their apartment complex in regards to noisy neigbors. I am not sure how old or new these posts are but I am hoping that someone would give me feedback in regards to my current situation. Above my unit are a couple, man and woman, since I moved in they have been in arguments, been loud, loud stompers, and worse the girl is very mentally unstable. Recently I got into an argument with them in regards to their nuisance behavior and it has escalated… lucky for me my other neighbors (tenants) have also witnessed their behavior and we have all signed a petition acknowledging their actions… but now since they know it is me who has taken the first step and complained, she me neighbor, has retaliated and even tried to sue me by stating that I am giving false information to my landord and has stated that I am harassing her but HAD NO LUCK! I involved an attorney and she has calmed down a bit,,, but is retaliating via other forms by greeting me as i walk to my apartment expecting me to give her a reaction that she has something to complain about like me harassing her, etc.. Which is crazy.. I see her and ignore her and then she stomps on my ceiling or blasts the T.V super loud… My manager has sent her letters but since he doesn’t live in the building it’s my word against hers.. again, good thing I always call another tenant/neighbor to hear and experience how crazy my neighbor above me is….. Unstable! Anyway, with a month and 12 days left I am hopeful that this letter will release me of my lease a little early.. I already signed another lease but will be paying double rent. OUCH! ANY HELP OUT THERE? Does anyone have any advice, etc,,, for me? I will without a doubt use this letter template but not sure how well it will be received from the management company. We’ll see.. BTW- my friend is an attorney but not an eviction attorney and only helped me by replying to a letter that was sent from her attorney. GRRRRR

    The MGR and the maintenance man went threw my cabinets looking for thrash bags and gloves! I have it recorded! I wasn’t home! I don’t feel safe staying here and we heard gun shots just 2 nights ago! My children can’t play outside! It feels like we are trapped in a prison in our own home! The apartments are 6 years old and are nice but the ac units have not been cleaned and the vents blow dust! I’ve written letters about the ac still nothing! My son has Lyme and says he can’t breath in the apartment! I smell mold and have had headaches for 3 months since we have lived here! Any help would be great!

    I believe everything published was very logical. But, consider this, suppose you added a little information? I am not suggesting your content is not good. , but what if you added a headline to maybe get folk’s attention? I mean Ryan’s Scraps: How to write an early lease termination letter is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page and see how they create post headlines to grab people interested. You might add a related video or a related pic or two to get people excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it could bring your posts a little livelier.

    I am in Wisconsin, and am in hell at the same time. The property manager never mentioned train horns at 3AM, 4AM, 5AM, ect….I have PTSD, post traumatic stress disorder. My lack of sleep has triggered an emotional and nervous breakdown. I have a therapist backing me on all this. They will not let me out of the lease, LEXINGTON PROPERTIES in the Appleton Wisconsin area, do not rent from these uncaring people. Anyway, any suggestions outside of this letter format? thanks in advance.
