A: You need to put it writing to your landlord and request to terminate the lease, and include a copy of your orders. If you think there is going to be a legal fight, send it certified mail and keep a copy. If you have an email address or fax number, I'd be that thorough. The earliest termination date will be 30 days after the date on which the next regularly scheduled rent is due.
