Yes, the tenant probably should have looked at alternatives before informing the LL.
But our building's tenants are mostly recent immigrants, coming from societies where authorities (in this case the LL), are not challenged.
Unfortunately, the first thing the tenant did after being told to relocate (very little extra $$ involved), was to inform the LL, thinking that, because his boss told him to relocate, the LL would voluntarily end the lease w/o penalties, and return the deposit.
The next day, he received the LL's waver to sign. His fear now is that by not signing the waver document before leaving next month, the LL will sue him for breaking the lease, which ends next summer.
Judging from the response of "Anna" to another posting, relocation is not a valid reason to break the lease.
