Life is full of unexpected changes, and sometimes you may find yourself needing to move before your lease is up. Whether it’s a new job, marriage, a better housing opportunity, or unresolved issues with your current landlord, breaking a lease can have legal and financial consequences.
When you sign a lease, you commit to a specific rental term. Moving out before this term expires is known as “breaking a lease,” as you’re breaking the agreement with your landlord.
Our expert team at Hepworth Legal will carefully review your lease and unique circumstances to ensure you understand all available options. We can also assist you in negotiating a settlement with your landlord that allows you to move out early. Our skilled negotiators can often secure more favorable terms for clients than what the legal remedy might provide. Furthermore, we can help you prepare any necessary documentation or evidence to support a settlement with your landlord.
By proactively addressing your lease-breaking situation, our legal team can help prevent a court case from being filed against you and protect you from excessive fees and costs. Keeping disputes out of court saves time, money, and safeguards your credit score from potential damage.
Every tenant’s situation is unique, and it’s essential to work with experts in Utah’s laws and regulations. Let our team at Hepworth Legal guide and support you during this challenging time.
