Joint Termination of the Tenancy

It is expensive and time consuming to legally evict a renter. Though sometimes eviction is the best route, there are other strategies to get renters who have violated their leases to move out. One option is to jointly terminate the tenancy.

To jointly terminate the tenancy, a landlord can let the renter know that the lease was violated. Instead of the renter getting evicted and having that on their record, they can move out early on a date agreed upon by the landlord. No time is spent in court or on legal fees, and both parties can move on to a better arrangement!
