What does your lease say about sub-leasing or terminating? You signed a lease and are responsbile for it until it ends. You can talk with your landlord and try and work something out; maybe he'll let you terminate with a fee or let you find someone to take over the lease. It is not your landlords problem that your are getting married. There is no legal action you can take. A lease is a contract.
: Last December I signed a two year lease on an apartment in Brooklyn. This December I got engaged and plan to move in to her apartment. I am planning on talking to my LL very soon and feel confident that we can work out an agreement. However, if we cannot, what type of legal action can I take to break this lease? It would be a great financial burden to keep both places. I read on tenant.net about the Order from the Residential Tenancies Tribunal but I think this is an Austrialian law.
: Any ideas?
