I am in an unfortunate situation where I may need to terminate a residential lease early. The lease has an Early Termination Clause which is about two months worth of rent + loss of security deposit, but allows for no more months of rent to be required to pay if the landlord takes longer to find a new tenant.
This is an ideal solution, but I am worried that this will still affect my ability to rent going forward. I was curious if, since this is a legal "out" for the lease, the Early Termination will still show up on my record for any future attempts at renting. Since it was done within the terms of the lease, can it still be used against me by future renters? When future landlords ask for my renter's history, will it simply show the months I rented, or additionally show that I left the lease early?
