Question

I wish to terminate my contract but it doesn't have an exit clause. What can I do?

Answer

One question many ask is “how do I terminate my contract no exit clause is in place?” The answer to this question will range depending on the specific type of contract in place. However, the best method for handling any type of situation in which you want out of a contract is to simply talk to the other party. Doing this will help to ensure that the other party understands your concerns. It is often best for this informal discussion to occur to avoid any legal action if it is possible to do so.

Finding Other Solutions

If you wish to exit a contract without an exit clause, you may be violating the terms of the agreement and as such, the other party may come after you legally. For this reason, you should ensure any contract you sign offers you some way to get out of the contract if the circumstances change. There may be solutions, though.

  • You may be able to buy out the lease, which would cost you the full price of the lease, but you would be able to get out of the property arrangement faster.
  • You may need to discuss other options with the provider. If the other person on the contract is willing, the contract can be dissolved.

It may also be necessary to obtain legal counsel in these situations. In many cases, your attorney can help you to determine the best legal recourse when the other party is unwilling or unable to work with you.
