What are the notice requirements for terminating the lease?
I am a business owner who recently signed a commercial lease for a property. I am looking to terminate the lease but am unsure of the notice requirements I must adhere to in order to do so. I would like to know what the notice requirements are for terminating the lease so that I can ensure I do not breach the terms of the lease.

The notice requirements for terminating a commercial lease in Maryland are going to vary depending on the specific terms of your lease agreement. Please read and refer to your lease. If your lease is month to month, then it's likely you'll have to provide at least 30 days notice. If your lease is for a longer term (6 to 12 months), it's likely you'll have to provide at least 90 days notice, and may need to pay damages for breach of the lease agreement.
