Is there any way to get out of a rental lease agreement due to loss of job and financial trouble?No and yes.No: Not unless you lease allows for it. If your lease said something like this: “Tenants shall have the ability to cancel this lease on 30 days’ notice in the event of provable job loss or financial difficulties,” then it’d be OK because it’s in your lease.But it’s not.You’re bound by the terms and conditions of your lease.However, the “yes” part of the answer is: Talk to your landlord. Explain the situation. While landlords don’t like tenants who try to rip them off, many landlords are sympathetic to real-world situations. And, just as important, if a landlord realizes that it’ll be impossible to collect rent from a tenant, the landlord would rather remove the old non-paying tenant and find a new one with the ability as well as the willingness to pay. It makes economic sense to do so. Depending on what state you’re in, it could take months or even a year or more for the landlord to evict you. No landlord wants a non-revenue producing unit for a year or more.There’s no guarantee it’ll work, but propose to the landlord that you’ll be out of there in 30 days. You and the landlord can negotiate about the fate of the security deposit.
