The whole point of signing a lease agreement with your tenant is to establish how long the residency will last. You expect your tenants to stay in place and continue paying rent for the entire lease term. When they don’t, and they move out early, it’s considered a lease break.
No Las Vegas landlord ever wants to hear that a tenant wants or needs to break the lease and leave the property before the end of the contractual term. It’s disruptive to your cash flow, it requires a lot of extra work on your end, and it leaves you feeling like it’s difficult to trust even well-screened tenants.
But, things happen. Even with good tenants who are otherwise excellent to work with. You need to be prepared for how you’ll handle a lease break. In Nevada, there are some reasons in which a tenant can lawfully break a lease and leave the property early. But even if your tenant is breaking the lease without legal cause, you don’t want to end the relationship with arguments and disputes.
A lease break can be handled professionally and with minimal loss to both landlords and tenants.
Let’s talk about how to hold tenants accountable for the consequences that come with a lease break and what you can do to make the situation a bit better for everyone involved.
