    It is not the landlords fault, problem or concern that your hubby lost his job. No state laws in the country allow you to break your lease under such circumstances.

    No, a lease is a binding contract between you and your landlord. Read it to find out if there is a way that you can buy out of the lease if you choose to move before the term of the lease ends.

    Ask the landlord if you can find a suitable renter who can come in and take over your lease. Other than that, I don't think there's much you can do unless your landlord is very cool and will let you break it. If you've been with them long and have a good relationship (rent paid on time etc), I think they will help you.

    Good luck and sorry about your husband's job. I live in MI too.

    Check your lease - there may a clause for protection. Also check your local tenant's law. Unfortunately, you're most likely going to have to work this out with the landlord. They won't automatically give you a free out, even if you're in a bad situation.

    Only if your lease has a clause covering loss of income.

    Only if you wrote that into the lease.

    ALL your answers are in your lease if you'd bother to READ it!

    Sure, just quit paying it. Just remember one rule: Don't go destitute trying to pay your bills. Pride kills finances. You and your family come first. You will need the money to sustain yourself.

    of course you can get out of it....you will have to pay the remainder of it in cash....
