Check your lease to see if there is a clause permitting your to break the lease, and if so, the conditions. If there is no such clause, your best bet is to talk to your landlord. If times are tight for them, they may refuse. Conversely, they may accept if you find someone to take over your lease.

i don't know if you'll be able to get off scott free but, they may cut you a break. Good luck, I'm trying to get out of my lease right now and they are not being cooperative at all!

Your job and your lease are not related in any way. There is no clause that makes your landlord suffer the consequences of your choice to remain unemployed. Get another job, everyone is laid off at some point, life does not stop, you simply get a different, and hopefully better position elsewhere.

Legally, no. You signed a contract. It's just like a car or credit card payment. Try to bring in a room mate (add them to the lease!) if you can.

Unfortunately, no, you cannot get out of your lease because you lost your job. It's not your landlord's fault you were laid off. I would talk to your landlord and see if there's something you may be able to work out with him/her. Otherwise, you're stuck paying the rent for the remainder of the lease.

Try and sublease or bring in a border. Good luck.

For whatever reason, you can't live in your apartment anymore. Maybe it's the constant unannounced intrusions by your landlord; maybe it's the plumbing that's gone unfixed for five months; maybe you've accepted a job in a different county and can't commute three hours every day. There are plenty of reasons why a tenant would want to break a lease. States set up protections for both landlord and tenant in order to ensure fair standards across the board. Knowing what these are is essential to breaking a lease. Here's what you need to know

No, legally you can't break the lease. You can try to work something out with your landlord or get someone to help you out.

I had to break a lease once. I talked to the landlord, the deal was I had to pay a breaking of lease fee and an advertising fee and continue to pay rent until they found someone else to move in and start a new lease. Breaking the lease can end up being very costly. You should start applying for jobs now since there is no telling when you will get called back to work. Go on seek.com.au and apply or every job you feel qualified or able to do. You may also like to consider getting a flatmate and adding them to the lease. Then you will only have half the rent to pay. Also if they are using your furniture you can charge them for furniture rent. Hope this helps
