Can I rent in a monthly basics if I can not commit to a one year lease?

Asked by eumaricarolina, Somerville, MA Sat Jul 28, 2012

I might be relocated for my job and need to rent in a monthly basics (my lease in my current apartment ends august 31st). Is that possible? If not, in case I lease for one year, whats the penalty if I have to cancel it before the year ends?

Hi eumaricarolina,

Most leases are for a year. However, you might be able to find a month to month rental (rare though - and they may be a little more costly). If you sign a one year lease, you will need to read the contract to see what the penalties are for cancelling the lease early.
