Getting out of a lease

As the needs of your business change, you may wish to get out of the lease on your premises. This is seldom easy. A lease is a legal contract, and your landlord can take you to court if you break it.

You may have several options, depending on the terms of your lease. Even if the lease lacks flexibility, your landlord may be prepared to negotiate a compromise.
