Rent Smart: Breaking a Lease

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM


For adults. 

Presented by Solid Ground tenant Counselors.

Do you need to break your lease to escape a dangerous situation? In this workshop, discuss three situations in which you may be able to break a lease without liability including:

  • You have experienced stalking, unlawful harassment, domestic violence or sexual assault
  • You have been assaulted by another tenant, and the other tenant was arrested
  • Your landlord has not responded to a serious repair issue in a reasonable amount of time

Also learn what to expect when breaking a lease in other circumstances

A visiting attorney from the Tenant Law Center will also be on hand to help with answering questions.

If you are currently living in King County and being threatened with eviction, contact the Housing Justice Project for legal assistance at 206.267.7069 or

Please register with an email address. You will receive an email with a Zoom link 24 hours before the event. You can also connect to this program by telephone.
