What if I want to end my lease early?

A housemate may be allowed to terminate their lease early at the discretion of the Alcove Operations Team with the following process:

1. In accordance with NCREC regulations, Alcove charges a lease termination fee that is equal to one month's rent plus your security deposit. This does not cover any outstanding payments from your time with Alcove or repairs/cleaning that is needed upon your room inspection.
2. While Alcove searches for a replacement roommate, the tenant is still responsible for the terms of their lease, and all applicable rental payments until a housemate replacement is found, and approved by both Alcove and your current housemates.
