Agreement to Cancel Lease

Landlords and tenants use a Lease Termination Letter to end a lease agreement early or confirm that an expiring lease term will not renew. Either party in a lease can fill out this document and present it to the other.

Why to create an Agreement to Cancel Lease?

Through this legal document a tenant ends their tenancy agreement with the landlord. One of the most common reasons for this process is when a tenant has purchased or found another property and needs to move to another location. However, there are other reasons why this may happen, including if they have been told that they need to relocate due to an emergency reason, if they are moving because their family member has died or if the premises was damaged by fire.

When Do you Need An Agreement to Cancel Lease?

You need this agreement when you will have the need to move to another location and need to vacate your rented property.

Increased rent/deposit amount

The owner may abruptly raise the rent or demand for more deposit fund/lease amount, observing the rising market trends, which is actually unfair to the tenants. The owners are not entitled to do so before the completion of term or without giving prior notice and time to the tenants.

Additional charges

The first thing that annoys tenants is when owners ask for additional charges for water, electricity, maintenance, cleaning, etc which they would not have mentioned earlier. Tenants get annoyed with such added financial costs which would make them rethink about continuing in the same house.

Safety concerns

The tenant may feel that there is some sort of danger to his life, property or health, if he stays in the rented premise. Also, if there are incidents of frequent crime or any kind of mishaps in the neighborhood, the tenant may start feeling unsafe to continue residing in the same location.

FAQ About Our Agreement to Cancel Lease​ Template

Like mentioned earlier, a rental agreement or a tenancy agreement comes to an end automatically when its term expires. However, the agreement can be ended by either a tenant or an owner before the term is completed, under certain circumstances. While either party may have various reasons to choose to terminate the agreement, listed below are the most common ones.

Eviction is the court-ordered physical removal of the tenant and his or her property through the assistance of a law enforcement officer. Terminating a lease may require the landlord to file an eviction lawsuit, or an unlawful detainer action, if the tenant remains in the rental after receiving a termination notice. To begin the eviction process, the landlord must file a complaint with the court and wait for the tenant’s answer. If the landlord prevails, whether based on the merits of the case or because the tenant failed to provide an answer, the landlord is legally entitled to repossess the property. If the tenant refuses to leave after receiving the notice of eviction, a law enforcement officer may remove the tenant.
