“Hi Gary. I’m currently renting near UTC with a lease through December. I wasn’t really planning to buy, but my girlfriend wanted to go out and look at homes. We’ve seen several at good prices that we can afford. So now I’ve got the bug and want to buy before rates go up. But I’ve got that lease. Any suggestions on how to get out of it?”
If you’ve been a particularly good or (ironically) bad tenant, your landlord may be willing to let you out of your lease early.
We’ve had many clients simply ask their landlords nicely to let them out of their lease early and gotten a “yes.”
Others have offered to help find a tenant, have actually found a tenant, or offered to pay an extra few weeks of rent and gotten their landlord’s OK.
Ask, and ye might receive…
