Dear [Name of Landlord]:

This letter is to formally notify you that I am required to break my lease before the stipulated termination date in the contract. My wife and I are divorcing, and each of us will seek a new residence.

In my lease contract, it gives provision for early termination if I notify you [30 days] in advance, pay any outstanding rent and pay one month’s rent as a fee for early termination. 

The date you receive this letter will begin my thirty days notice, and at the end of that time on [DATE], I will give both the remaining rent and an additional full month’s rent. My forwarding address is [ADDRESS].

I will be available any day after [6:00 pm] if you would like to view the house to determine that it is in good condition, so you can refund my deposit. You can contact me at [555-123-4567] or a [name@email.com] if you have any questions or requests for me.
