Best way is to find someone to take your lease over

like

Craigslist, Facebook, your own network. Offer them an incentive and usually can come out pretty decent!

Read your contract carefully. There maybe a clause related to losing your employment or having to move for a job. Good luck

Thanks

Try and negotiate? If you tell em you lost your job and offer them something they may see it better than risk of potentially getting nothing from someone who is now unemployed (I’m sure you’ll find a new gig fast but they don’t need to know that)

Sublease would be your easiest out, I’m in the same situation. Its like 6k to get out my lease so I’m just biting the bullet and paying

Care to mention which group this was with? I’m in the offer stage with KPMG and I’m getting worried because they are taking FOREVER (going on a month now) to follow through with the offer letter

If subletting isn’t easy or is costly in your contract, look at adding someone as a roommate (which landlords are often legally required to allow, depending on your state and city), and then removing yourself.

I will look into the contract. Highly doubt that they will allow that but it worth the shot. Thanks

I was in the same situation in DC a few weeks ago. I just talked to my landlord and we were able to work something out - I showed the apartment on behalf of the landlord and found someone to sign a one year lease in exchange for her ripping up my current lease

I’m sorry about the unemployment. Good luck finding something. Enjoy this time to take your search as slow and carefully as you can

So someone I know asked HR about a boot policy. When he found out that there wasn’t one, but his boss said there was (who gave the guys $ for boots and the claimed it on his expense reimbursements as something else) the boss got mad at him for askingHR (and in trouble for the expense reimbursements) and then 2 days later laid off my friend. There appears to be no notice of bad performance and this person always was the first person on the job site ready to work. Thoughts?
