Renter's Letter to End Lease

A Renter's Letter to End Lease is a document used to notify the landlord that the renter will be ending the lease. It can be used in two situations. The first is when the renter will not renew the lease agreement once the lease period ends and the second is when the renter will not complete the lease period agreed upon in the lease agreement.

The renter should note that there are some lease agreements that have a penalty for ending the lease early.


How to use this document

This letter can be used for two scenarios: first, to inform the landlord that the renter will not renew the lease agreement once the lease period ends; and second, to inform the landlord that the renter will not complete the lease period agreed upon in the lease agreement.

In either case, the letter will include information on the lease such as the address of the leased property, the start date, end date and the date when the renter will vacate the leased property. If the renter will end the lease period early, the user will be asked if there is a penalty for ending the lease and, if so, if the reason for ending the lease is exempt from the penalty. If the reason is exempt, then the reason for ending the lease early will be included in the letter.

The user will also be asked if the renter had paid a security deposit for the lease of the property and whether its return will be asked for in the letter. If yes, the amount of security deposit and the period for returning it will be included in the letter.

Once the document is completed, the user should print and sign the letter before sending it to the landlord.


Applicable Laws

Matters related to lease and contracts are generally governed by the Civil Code of the Philippines. Additionally, other laws such as Republic Act No. 9653 (the "Rent Control Act") as extended by the Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council Resolution No. 1 Series of 2017 ("HUDCC Resolution No. 1") governs lease contracts that fall under the following conditions:

1. The property is located in the National Capital Region or highly urbanized cities and the total monthly rent ranges from One Peso (P1.00) to Ten Thousand Pesos (P10,000.00)
2. The property is located in other areas and the monthly rent ranges from One Peso (P1.00) to Five Thousand Pesos (P5,000.00).

The lease agreement for the lease of the property may also contain provisions on notice and penalties for certain acts such as terminating the lease.
