Tenant Ending Rental Agreement

If the doctor declares that a tenant is a victim of domestic violence, he or she must complete the doctor`s declaration. A separate declaration must be made for each tenant who wishes to be declared a victim of domestic violence. The tenant must attach the signed declaration to a dismissal for domestic violence and give these documents to his landlord or the landlord`s agent to end his lease. The owner`s notification must also state which of the above reasons applies. This reason must be real. If this is not the case, the tenant can contest the termination by the rental court. A lease agreement is a legally binding contract that can only be terminated in a certain way. If a lessor follows the required procedure, he can also apply to the court for an injunction if the tenant denies having to pay the corresponding costs, if any.
