How to break the lease when tenant got lay-off from his job ?
I have a lease term of 17 months, rent is 900$. I got laidoff from my job from a big company recently. I can’t afford to stay in this apartment any more. I am in Lowell, MA. I just completed 10 months of lease term. Still 7 months to go. Lease agreement says that if I have to leave the apartment I have to give 60 day notice and pay two months rent as lease breakage charges(900+900= 1800$)I heard that there are some laws which says that if an employee gets laid-off from job, he doesn’t have to pay lease breakage charges in Massachusetts state. Is there any law ?
Please reply me..
