If you have a written lease and wish to terminate it, make sure to have your lease checked with a professional before taking any further actions.
If you are a renter, and your home has serious damage, know that your landlord has the right to terminate your written lease, unless otherwise specified. You, as the renter may also terminate your lease in the case of serious damage. Under California law, your lease is terminated when the rental unit is destroyed, unless the lease states otherwise.
