Dear (your landlord’s name),
In your opening paragraph, summarize what your letter is about. Tell your landlord that you plan to be moving from (address) on (specific date) without fault, or include details about an early termination clause.
Next, inform the landlord that you wish to be present when the property is being inspected for cleanliness, damages, etc. Inform the landlord that you will be moving to (future address) and request that all correspondence be forwarded to that address effective (date).
Go on to state that you have fulfilled your lease (if applicable), or if you are acting on an early termination clause, include specific amounts you intend to pay in penalties and fees. Be clear on all details of the lease so that problems do not arise later.
Thank the letter for their consideration and time, and let them know that you appreciate the opportunity you had to live at your home/apartment.
Sign your name directly above the typed signature. Remember that a lease termination is a legal document, so make certain all information presented is correct. The tips and outline above will make writing a lease termination letter less daunting.
