Should your lease term be over, provide at least 21 days of written notice to move out. If your lease is still ongoing and you wish to exit early, submit a written request to “break” the agreement. Your Property Manager will inform you about associated costs and the procedure for re-renting the property. Details are also available in your Lease Agreement.
