As the resident you are responsible for making sure the owner does not incur any loss due to your lease break.
As the property manager our job is to help minimize your expenses. The best way to do this is by reducing the time the property sits on the market vacant.
The most important thing you can do if you are going to be breaking your lease is to communicate with us throughout the process. The more notice you can give us the better.
NOTE: This does not change the terms of your rental agreement. Rent is still due on the 1st and late after the 4th. You will be charged a late fee if payment is not paid on time.
You will need to reference your early termination language in your lease agreement. This can be found on page 2 of your lease under section 4. If you do not have a predetermined lease break fee then you are responsible for actual damages. Actual damages includes, but is not limited to.
Provide us plenty of notice and allow a flexible showing schedule. The more we are able to show the property, the faster we are able to rent the property. Every day the property is vacant costs money.
In addition to being flexible with a showing schedule you will also want to leave the property in tip-top condition by following the move-out instructions carefully. If the property is left in substandard condition it could prolong the turnover time which you would be responsible for.
