I recently signed a 1-year lease for an apartment. The lease says I will have to pay 3 months worth of rent if I end the lease earlier. Ever since I moved in (3 months ago), I've suffered from constant construction noises. Their walls are paper-thin, and they're constantly rebuilding people's deck, digging up the parking lots, leaf blowing, replacing roofs, cutting down trees, and god knows what else, every single day. They make so much noises it's giving me migraines. I've talked to the leasing office and they said they are legally able to make such noises 7am-10pm every day. That's insane! It gets so bad that I want to end my lease here but I don't want to pay 3 months worth of rent. Since I wasn't informed about such horrendous noises happening 15 hours/day before signing the lease, do I have enough basis to end the lease early without paying the fine?
You need to give written notice of the breach of the lease ( quiet enjoyment) before you can terminate with paying the termination fee.
