The tenant may be making a concerted effort to break the lease by making complaints regarding the property condition, mold, a sexual predator moving nearby, disturbances from neighbors, safety fears, or anything else the tenant can come up with.
The reasons may actually be legitimate, but often the tenant simply wants to move for an unrelated reason. The landlord can take a hard line position and refuse to allow the tenant to break the lease and potentially face an even more concerted effort by the tenant, or worse yet, litigation may be threatened or instituted.
If a tenant really wishes to break a lease, he simply will. Nothing can force a tenant to remain on the premise for the balance of the lease, and collecting monetary damages from a tenant who has vacated prior to the end of the lease is often hopeless.
In such cases, the landlord actually wants the tenant to break the lease. The Lease One of the hardest things for our clients to understand is that although the lease has a beginning and an ending date, a judge may allow the tenant to break the lease.
A tenant may come up with an excellent story in court which may be a complete falsehood, and the judge is put in a position to either believe the tenant or the landlord. Often a tenant can lie more convincingly than you can tell the truth.
Legitimate Tenant Complaints If a tenant complains about a legitimate and verifiable problem that the landlord cannot rectify within a reasonable period of time, we feel that the tenant should be given an offer by the landlord to break the lease. Typical example could be a mold problem not caused by the tenant, some damage to the premises necessitating the tenant to vacate in order for a repair to be effectuated, or serious disturbances caused by neighbors which you cannot rectify.
We recommend that the tenant be given a written offer to break the lease without penalty at any time by giving the landlord a particular number of days' notice.
The number of days will depend upon then severity of the problem and how anxious the landlord is for the tenant to vacate. If the tenant fails to vacate, it will be more difficult in the event of a court action for the tenant who remains on the premises and withholds rent if the owner has made the offer to vacate and the tenant did not accept this offer.
Occasionally a tenant will state in court that she would have vacated but did not, because she would be held liable for the rent under the lease.
By making the offer to the tenant, this argument does not hold up. Other Tenant Complaints Many tenant complaints simply will be lame excuses to break the lease. You may feel they are completely ridiculous excuses or possibly even fabricated issues.
A tenant may have been subjected to a criminal act or vandalism to the premises. While your opinion is that the excuses are not legitimate or the tenant was involved in some criminal activity which caused a problem on the property, never underestimate what a tenant can do in court to convince a judge that there is some legitimate reason why the tenant's peaceful quiet enjoyment of the premises is being interfered with to the level at which the tenant should be allowed to break the lease.
In many situations it will be best for all to just let the tenant go. Returning the security deposit immediately An effective way to help a tenant vacate quicker is to offer to return the security deposit immediately to the tenant upon vacating the premises.
Most tenants will not wish to wait for the landlord to follow the security deposit claim procedures, and most will not trust the landlord to return the money.
Tenants often request this immediate return as part of the terms of vacating. If this is part of a deal, it must be made clear when and how the money will be transferred, and the landlord needs to understand the risk that in the event there are damages to the premises, the funds will be gone.
An inspection of the premises prior will be necessary to see if this is feasible. Your attorney will advise you on the mechanics, and a document should be drawn up detailing all the terms.
We do not recommend allowing the tenant to use the security deposit for the last month of occupancy, as you have no assurance that the tenant will in fact vacate the premises. Single Family Home Management While an apartment management company has free reign to allow tenants out of a lease, if you are managing a home for an owner and you do not have full power in your management agreement to make such lease break decisions without owner input, it is crucial that the owner gives you permission in writing to allow the tenant to break the lease.
You need to be clear with the owner that the tenant will be breaking the lease with no penalty if this is the case. This permission always needs to be given in writing.
Often an owner will agree to a lease break, but is under the impression that the tenant will continue to owe the rent or forfeit escrow money that the manager is holding. It is imperative that all the terms are made perfectly clear to avoid an angry owner who wishes to take out his or her frustrations on the property manager by filing a FREC complaint or civil action.
Resistance by the property owner to a lease break Most owners will not be sympathetic to a tenant lease break request. They are often absentee owners and do not understand the situation or Florida law. Use your attorney to encourage the owner to allow the tenant to break the lease. A conversation between the attorney and the owner can often instill some sense and reasonableness in the mind of the absentee owner.
The Mutual Release If a landlord and tenant agree to ending the relationship, the last thing either party wants is to have a potential lawsuit filed after the agreed upon lease break. In this release, all the terms and conditions are set out, and all parties release each other from any legal liability, past, present and future.
Can this completely protect the landlord? As for damage to personal property and money issues, the Mutual Release will accomplish the desired results, but beware that the landlord may still have potential liability.
A tenant can sign a release and possibly later the tenant or a minor occupant could develop a health issue that he or she attributes to the tenancy. Do not trust a Mutual Release to completely protect the landlord in this situation, but always use one when allowing the lease break.
The quick answer is that the property can sell a hundred times, and the lease will survive. When a tenant rents a unit, the tenant has a full right to use that unit for the period of time as defined in the lease agreement.BOOKS ON BLUEBIRDS If you are a trail monitor and only get one book, I'd recommend The Bluebird Monitor's Guide or the Mountain Bluebird Trail Monitoring rutadeltambor.com you are new to bluebirding, Enjoying Bluebirds More (small and dated, but informative) or the Bluebird Book are excellent choices.
