Updated: Mar 3, 2021

Dealing with the lease or rental of property as you're trying to leave an abusive relationship. Great video from Mark Novak and Michael Burgio from Novak Properties along with Rosy Sullivan. Videos for agents and their clients.


A tenant can terminate their tenancy immediately and without penalty under a set of specific conditions.


I know that many professional women in such a situation are hesitant to break their lease because of the financial overheads involved from breaking the lease to moving. Especially in cases where financial control is pervasive.


Because of the change in the law here, all it requires is a competent person to endorse the application for the break in lease. It takes a community to help one another.
