Legal Question

Asked on: 7/02/13, 8:47 am

I would like to "break my lease" with the house I am renting now. The reason is because I would like to purchase a home that I found. The following is the only wording pertaining to the tenant now fulfilling the lease. The only part that I understand is that I would have to pay 1/2 of one months rent. It does not address the security deposit or anything else. Please explain what this means...

"Tenant agrees that if for any reason this lease is not fulfilled that in addition to any costs to the Lessor as to the non-fulfillment of the lease, tenant will pay a re-leasing fee of one half of one months rent."
