Can I break my lease because I lost my job?

If you're wondering, "Can I break my lease because I lost my job?" the answer is "No". While it's a difficult time for you and your family, your landlord is not entitled to release you from the promise that you made to pay rent in the lease agreement.

With that said, you should still ask your landlord to terminate the lease early. Some landlords may show mercy and release you from all obligations under the lease. Get any release in writing, and make sure that you're not liable to the landlord for damages under the release.
