Is it possible to get out of a Residential Lease that I signed 4 months ago for a one year agreement?
I am a landlord and also a licensed broker. Aside from simply trying to negotiate with the landlord to break your lease early, there's nothing you can legally do to break it and not be on the hook for the remainder of the lease term. HOWEVER, if you abandon the premises, the landlord has a legal obligation to make his/her "best effort" to re-rent the property out. If the landlord finds a new tenant, then you are off the hook from that point on. Any months during the lease where rent was not paid and the landlord didn't have a new tenant in place, you'll be on the hook for. If you choose not to pay those amounts, the landlord can pursue civil action against you to recover them.Whether your landlord will actually follow the law and make a reasonable effort to re-rent the property out really is determined by whether you were paying above/below market rate for the place, and/or how easy it will be for the landlord to come after you to recover that money.The one thing the landlord can not legally do is collect double rents (i.e from you and a new tenant).

Its not a norm.A term called “notice period”. This is the duration of time.

Just to incorporate the loss of rent for upcoming month.
Rental Agreements: Are one-month notices to landlords always necessary?
From an Indian Perspective:You need to give a notice to your landlord as per the terms of your agreement as mutually agreed upon at the start of term. Please make sure you have sufficient provision for termination in the agreement, so that neither party faces hardship.Sometimes landlords accept a lower notice period if they find a tenant to replace you, so if you can find someone who will move in to the place, you can avoid giving a notice. Either ways you need to make sure that:Make sure all the relevant clauses(along with remedies) are in the agreement prior to signing it.Talk to your landlord if you have a genuine reason for moving out without being able to serve them a notice.

What is the way to get a roommate out, who refuses to leave even though it is a month to month lease and based only on an oral agreement?
Without a written agreement, you will fall back on the ‘default’ agreement that will be defined in law for your state or country.Since you don’t have a written agreement, I’m going to assume you do not know much about the local landlord-tenant laws - in which case, get a lawyer or property specialist right now.It will cost you money, but a drawn-out battle will cost more, both financially and emotionally. Even an initial discussion will give you some basic strategies to try, and you can start the legal process too.
How one month notice period is calculated according to rental agreement before vacating a flat?
Notice period will be same as your rent cycle as mentioned in the agreement. Ideally it means about the period before you are planning to vacate the premises. E. G. If you are planning to leave by mid-feb, you can tell the landlord in jan first week or dec last week if your rental month is as per the English calendar. This helps you because in case you are planning to leave in the middle of rental month, you can negotiate payment and settlement of rent towards excess stay
Do month-to-month rental agreements exist in Los Angeles?
They may at a premium. Landlords do not like to keep re-renting the same places. It is a waste of time for the landlord and rough on the rental. There are apartments that will rent at a premium for a short term lease that reverts to a month to month. The minimum is usually three months.
Could an on-demand month-to-month rental agreement ever replace the standard long-term contract?
On demand? Both tenants and landlords may have reasons for mtm rentals…but in the long run- it’s not in a landlords best interest. I don’t see it becoming more popular than the typical one year lease.
How enforceable are riders to a rental property lease agreement?
The riders must be signed and dated by both owner/property manager and the tenant for them to be enforceable. The verbiage and the clarity of the reason/purpose for the rider is crucial. If it’s vague, that’s going to be problematic. Other than that, I can’t tell you anything further because you have provided no specifics. For specific answers to your question, see a real estate/tenancy attorney for a consultation.
