Ending a residential lease agreement early?
I recently entered into a residential lease agreement for an apartment in my city. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I am now in need of terminating my lease early. I am looking for advice on the best way to proceed in order to ensure that I am not held liable for any costs or fees associated with ending the lease early.

It is entirely the landlords decision as to whether to allow you to terminate early. If only because you want to move to another location and there’s nothing wrong with the unit. There are some possibilities of a substitution of a tenant that perhaps the landlord would agree to. Or if fourth of a part of your deposit, assuming you made one… There are a variety of ways to approach this, but ultimately is the choice of the landlord.
