    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . Depends on what the termination language in the lease says. If it is truly without just cause, and you have a written lease for 1 year, then no, they cannot. But you should bring your lease to a lawyer and let them analyze the termination language to make a better determination.

    This is general advice and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
