Just signed a 1 year lease for a two story home 6 weeks ago. Recently i was told I cannot get the knee replacement operation for at least a year. I am required to lose 150 lbs. before they will do the surgery. I have been told not to climb stairs due to the possibility for a knee lock up and a fall. I need to move to a single story home. would this justify breaking the lease and what do I have to do to get this done?
Your knee issues likely do not justify you breaching your contract with the landlord. However, I find that most people are willing to work with tenants if you approach them with ample time, explain your reasoning, and perhaps find a replacement tenant, etc.
