When you need to break a lease early you should never just stop paying rent, move out, and hope for the best. Your landlord can, and often will, take legal action to claim rent for the remaining months on your lease. Writing to your landlord explaining your situation and offering to mitigate the damages by helping find a new tenant is often all it takes to receive an early lease termination with no penalties.
When you do need to break a lease you'll be required to provide written notice to the landlord. A letter to release from a lease agreement early, as with all contract related interactions with a landlord, needs to be formalized and well written, containing the necessary sections and terms for complete, official, closure. If any type of dispute occurs later on, a more frequent occurrence than most imagine, this provides a record of proof of the early request to be released from the current lease. And as the renter is trying to be released from a financial obligation without any penalty, a professionally written letter is a necessity.
