Choosing Where to Live

questions & answers

Question: can a senior break a lease to move to senior living?

Answer: A lease is a contract between the landlord and the tenant. Each lease is different and has its own terms, to see if there are any special clauses in your lease you may wish to review it for specifics. There is no Arizona law that specifically mandates that a senior may break a lease to move to a senior living center. Too learn more about your rights please review this article on AZLAWHELP or the Arizona Residential Landlord Tenant Act. You can locate the article at http://azlawhelp.org/articles_info.cfm?mc=3&sc=24&articleid=46. For more information you may want to contact an attorney to see if you have grounds to break a lease.
