Experienced Real Estate Attorney in New Jersey
Working with Tenants Who Want to Terminate a Lease Early
Are you currently renting a home or an apartment, with months left on the lease? Do you need or want to terminate or “break” the lease before the end of the term in your agreement? If so, it’s imperative that you retain skilled and experienced legal counsel to protect your rights, so that you minimize the risk of financial loss.
At The Cintron Firm, LLC, we have worked closely with tenants in New Jersey for more than 14 years, handling a broad range of issues, including the early termination of leases. We know that every situation is unique, so we’ll take the time to get to know you and to understand both the circumstances of your case, as well as what you need to move forward. We won’t put you through a cookie-cutter process, but will provide individualized legal counsel tailored to your specific needs. Whenever possible, we’ll attempt to negotiate the termination of your lease without resorting to litigation. However, Mark Cintron has considerable prosecutorial and courtroom experience, and knows how to protect your interests before a judge and jury.
Our Representation in Lease Termination Matters
When you retain us to help you end a residential lease, we’ll carefully review your lease agreements, as well as the circumstances of your tenancy, so that we can identify legitimate reasons for terminating your agreement. Some of the issues we will look at include:
- Whether there were conditions in the property that made it uninhabitable or extremely difficult to live there
- Whether the landlord has violated federal law or breached the lease agreement—did the landlord take appropriate actions to address a physical handicap you have? Did the landlord fail to properly maintain the premises?
- Is there any basis for declaring the lease void or unenforceable? Were you a co-tenant with someone who has died or can no longer honor the lease agreement?
