Default TN - Buying House - Apt Lease Termination?

Hello,

I am in buying a house, but have still 6 month to go on my apt lease.
I heard that by TN law I can terminate the lease with a 30 day written notice in such case.
Anyone who knows if this is true and where I can find this law?

Thank you

Probably not true. I could find nothing for that exclusion in TN LL tenant codes.

Not likely.
Let me google that for you

But whatever the law may allow the real issue is what the LL will be willing to make easy or hard and to avoid that sort of problem the BEST thing you can do is **talk to your landlord** and do all you can to make the place clean and look nice.

He'll appreciate the chance to get a new tenant before winter sets in.

A 30 day notice is only legal in most states (most as some require a 60 day notice) if you're on a month to month tenancy, which you're not. A lease is a contractual agreement which both parties have to be bound by. Google, "(your state) landlord tenant laws" for confirmation. Check your lease to see if an early lease termination clause is included in it. If not, consult with your LL as you may be able to arrange an early "buy-out" of your lease. Good luck.
