A landlord is also required to fulfill all of their obligations in their rental agreement. The rental agreement is a contract between the landlord and the tenant if the landlord has not fulfilled his obligations he may be in materiall breach of the contract and the tenant may be able to terminate the agreement. If the landlord has fulfilled his obligations and the tenant wishes to terminate the contract then there may be fees associated with leaving. Please see the article Landlord Tenants Rights and Responsibilities.
