Breaking A Lease?
Breaking a lease?
If you are stuck in a bad lease or need to move, you are not without options. While you may be liable for rent that should have been paid through the full term, plus reletting expenses, the landlord has a duty to relet the space in a reasonable manner, which in the Bay Area may be a matter of weeks! Therefore, if you find yourself or your deposit under pressure due to a change of circumstances, see an attorney about structured buy outs and settlement before you go to court. Paying small attorney’s fees to resolve a case is better than paying large fees later if you lose!
