Mississippi Notice Requirements for Lease Termination by Tenant

If a tenant wants to terminate a weekly rental agreement lease, then, the tenant must give the landlord a seven-day written notice prior to the termination date. If a tenant wants to terminate a month-to-month lease, then, the tenant must give the landlord 30-days written notice prior to the termination date. 

A lease for longer than one month will end on its termination date stated in the lease agreement unless renewed or extended. If it is a yearly lease with no termination date, the notice must be given two months before the end of the year.

Legally Terminate a Lease Early in Mississippi

Either the landlord or tenant may terminate a lease early for a material breach of the lease agreement or if the premises are damaged beyond repair by a casualty such as a fire.

Here are other valid reasons for early termination of a lease by a tenant:

  • Military Service: Federal law allows early termination of a lease for relocation caused by military service.
  • Domestic Abuse: Victims of domestic abuse have a valid reason for early termination of a lease.
  • Habitability, Health, and Safety: A valid reason for early termination of a lease is if the landlord is given 30-days notice to make repairs of the rental unit for habitability. This includes material things such as severe pest infestation or problems with heating, cooling, electrical, and plumbing that make the rental unit uninhabitable. If the landlord fails to fix the problem within 30 days after getting written notice from a tenant, then, the tenant may terminate the lease early.
