During the term of a lease, the lessee cannot terminate the lease at any given moment or for any reason (e.g. divorce, loss of employment, purchase of a house).

Failing agreement with the lessor, there are only some very specific situations allowing for the resiliation of a lease during its term.

This section deals with several subjects of interest concerning the resiliation of a lease.
