HSABC and TRAC Webinar: Breaking a Lease

October 25, 2022, 10:00 - 11:30 AM

A fixed-term tenancy – often referred to as a “lease” – is a legal contract. How much compensation does a tenant owe their landlord for breaking a lease? Are there times when a tenant is legally allowed to break their lease? What are some alternatives to lease-breaking? This webinar will teach participants the rights and responsibilities of tenants and landlords when signing fixed-term tenancies, or “leases”. Presented in partnership with TRAC.
