Breaking a lease with a doctors note?
You can always break a lease, but there are legal and financial consequences for so doing. And this isn't HS where a doctor's note is a free pass. You will still be BREAKING your lease and responsible for the consequences. READ your agreement. You need to carefully check out safety of premises PRIOR to signing a lease. LL is right, it is what it is, and you accepted it by signing a lease. It's NOT the LL's fault that you're pregnant and that you have decided you don't want to haul a baby up and down the stairs or are belatedly concerned about the safety. And just because a tenant WANTS something fixed, doesn't mean a LL HAS to fix it. That said, if it is truly a safety issue, not merely your excuses, put it in writing to LL that you are concerned about safety of the stairs and condition of railing and request that he promptly address the issues.

No a doctor's note does not void your lease. You sue in court to have the judge void your lease

Do you have a clause in your contract that states you can break a lease with a doctor's note? That's not a legitimate reason to break a lease. You're free to continue to pay the rent and move elsewhere.

You cannot break your lease without a penalty even with a doctors note. The lease you signed off on is a legally binding agreement and you cannot just walk away from your obligations regardless of any health concerns. You will need to speak with your landlord to find out the penalty. Most landlords require 30-60 days written notice while you continue paying rent. You are then charged 2-3 months rent plus administrative fees in one lump sum as penalty for breaking the lease early. Do you have that much money to throw away?

You can't "do this with a doctors note" but please level with your landlord and tell him you are having trouble because of your pregnantcy, blame yourself and not him and you will be heard for effectively. It's possible he will let you off the lease. Also please offer to help find a new renter....
