Yes, to secure any possible damages, not just if you break the lease.

If both of you agreed upon the same terms and conditions, and signed the lease accordingly, then it is just as binding as one that would be furnished by an attorney, etc.

No, just signed by the Landlord and Tenant.

No, just signed by the Landlord and Tenant.

he just got signed yesterday

If your landlord breaks into your apartment or enters it without notifying you, this is grounds to break a lease. You can't break a lease just because there was a break in, however. Landlords are not even legally required to tell you if you are moving into a high crime area. If you can prove this is an ongoing and pervasive problem , it may be grounds to break your lease. Get real documentation, not just hearsay.Police reports and other victims or witnesses.

It depends on the term of your lease. If you had signed a one year lease, an additional year may be offered at a higher monthly rate. If you had signed a longer term lease, the landlord cannot increase the rent during the course of the lease unless specifically permitted in the lease.

Read through your lease agreement. Usually, there are circumstances where, if enough notice is given, that the lease can be ended early. This allows the owner of the building to manage the property. I have had this happen twice, and both times it worked to my advantage since the deposit was returned and I did not have to finish the lease.

No, their were engagement rumors just yesterday.

no you might not be able to break the lease because i tried to do that once when i had problems with my apartment and if you do you have to pay the rent for the months you made the lease for its expensive trust me i had to pay a 4 month lease witch was $3200.00 !!!!!!!!! so im sorry to say this but if u want to pay $3200.00 go ahead i would recommend u to just stay there for as long as u did ur lease for? sorry about that

Each state has different laws about breaking leases so it all depends where you live. Most states will not allow you to break a lease just because the landlord changes the pet policy.

If they haven't paid any money to you, or signed any contract you can just tell them they have to leave

If you have something that a judge can take from you, you might just end up in court.

A 'let' is probably referring to a lease (rental of a house) and therefore 'let agreed' on a sign means that someone has said they will sign a lease to rent the house and expect to be moving in shortly (ie the house is no longer available but the lease is still to be signed). Once the lase IS signed the sign will be change to just "let".

just send to the cowboys address I got 3 back signed yesterday.

Hi Written Contracts supercede oral contracts. Some extraordinary circumstance apart, the court will uphold the written contract. Sorry. You just needed to ensure that what you signed was what was agreed.

An email is just as good as a signed document, as long as the other party did not immediately email back contesting the validity of the email.

Check in with your leasing office. Sometimes you get lucky; your penalty will be a month or so of rent. Others charge you the entire amount remaining on your lease. It depends on your lease. I once was lucky--they wanted the apartment for someone else.

No and they are not required to take it. You have a contract, you promised to pay for a year and they promised to provide a place to live. They could sue you for balance of lease, get judgement etc

There are a number of reasons a rentor may need to break a lease, and usually there is a legal way to do so. At any rate, the worst that can usually occur if you break a lease agreement is that you will incur additional fees and will have to pay out the remainder of the lease. Broken leases also mean forfeiting any deposits you may have paid at the first signing. If you cannot under any circumstances complete the lease agreement, there are a couple ways you can break the lease legally.Ask the landlord if you can find a tenant to take your place and finish out your lease (or just start their own). The main concern that landlords and property owners have when rentors break leases, is that there is no one renting and thus no one paying rent. Often times if you talk to the landlord, they may be agreeable to finding a replacement.Suggest buying out the remainder of the lease. If you have a lot of time left on the lease, you may not want to pay a full month’s rent for each month that is left. You could possibly come up with a lesser amount that the landlord may agree to. Again, as long as you are open to solving the problems that the property owner may have as a result of you breaking your lease, you have a better chance of working something out.Unhealthy or hazardous conditions on the property would be sufficient reason to break your lease. You may have to have the property inspected as proof that you cannot reside on the premises, but it will be well worth it if you want to get out of the lease especially for reasons that are no fault of your own. The landlord is obligated to provide a dwelling that is safe.Have an attorney look over your lease. The attorney may be able to find a loophole in the lease that frees you from being bound by its terms. Additionally, if there was something you did not originally understand when you signed the lease, or the lease was not clear, the attorney may be able to assist you in breaking it.Breaking a lease could result in a lawsuit by the landlord with legal fees that could be added on to any fees incurred from not completing out the terms of the lease. For this reason, you want to make sure you exhaust all options before breaking your lease and try to find a legal arrangement for terminating the agreement.

Not without the penalty stated in the contract. The lease can't be broken because of personal problems. It is possible that a cool landlord would just let you out of the lease if you talk to him about it, but they don't have to bend over backward if they don't want to.

You should be able to just move out. But check with your land lord for the proper procedure. Good luck at moving, I know that it is stressful.
