Preparing to lease your property

What happens if tenants break their lease?

The tenant cannot legally break their lease unless there is a specific provision added to the lease. There are times when it makes sense to allow a tenant to break their lease if they cover the cost of finding a new tenant. But this rarely happens and the owner is required to approve.

If tenants  break their lease, they must pay rent until the property is leased to a new tenant or until their lease expires. In addition, they may pay advertising costs, real estate commissions and other costs directly related to efforts to lease the property.

We hope this covers it, but we may have missed something. If you still have questions, drop us a note:
