Whats the best way to break a 12month apartment lease with the least penalties and the least amount of credit score lowering?

They haven't kept up with maintaining repairs in a timely manner, too. For example, it took them almost 3-months to fix a toilet.

  • Document EVERYTHING! This is going to be key in breaking the lease! Make sure you email and call them about problems. Have things in writing, even if you have to send the emails yourself to confirm what is happening.

    Make sure to get copies of bills and receipts for anything that you pay for out of your pocket, make sure the date, amount of money paid/owed and what work is being done is documented on the bill.

    Go to the people who regulate the landlords. Sometimes even threatening to go to them is going to cause your landlord to take action. But be aware of your own rights, research beforehand and make sure you know what you can legally do in your situation.

  • Call your town council, city hall to see if they can guide you in the right direction. There must be a dept. that handles landlords who do not keep up maintenance on their tenants property.
