I have a three year lease with my tenant which expires a year from now. The lease includes a clause stating that the lease can be terminated early if the landlord requires the unit back for personal use by giving 60 days’ notice. Am I able to terminate the lease earlier because of this clause?
Despite the fact that this clause is in the lease you would not be able to terminate the lease earlier for the purpose of moving in. When there is a fixed term lease in place a landlord can only terminate the tenancy for the landlord’s personal use at the end of the lease term.
