What documents or proof do I need to give to my landlord to get out of my lease if I am a victim?
To break your lease, you must give your landlord certain documents. You will need to give your landlord:
- written notice that is signed and dated that states you are ending your lease; and
- a qualifying document that proves that you are a victim of abuse.1 See What is considered a “qualifying document”? for more information.
