What is a customary break lease clause?We have rented same house 4 yrs and want to buy. We asked for a break lease clause to be added to the lease in case we found something we loved. Well, they want 2 mos. rent on top of losing our security deposit for breaking. Is this a little extreme? They wont go month to month and if they did agree to that the rent would be raised by a 100 or more/month. Other than trying to time our buy around the end of the lease what can we do?January 30 2012 - Orlando00YesReport a ProblemProblemSelect oneOffensive contentIrrelevant contentSpam (pure self-promotion)OtherDetailsYour emailPlease enter a valid email address.Submit CancelContent flaggedWe will review this content.
