"Lesses have the option to terminate this lease agreement after the first six months, should they be relocated, by providing a 45 day written notice. Documentation of relocation must be provided by employer."
As a former LL of 20 years I rarely come to the defense of tenants unless there is good reason to.
But in this case I will.
That's an extremely weak clause.
You don't define "relocation" and you don't define "documentation".
Under your vague clause, I could move across the street (relocate) and have my employer send a letter saying, "Dear Sir, He moved across the street" (documentation).
As Drew often points out, contractual provisions that are unclear, undefined, or ambiguous are construed by courts against the creator of the contract who is trying to enforce those terms.
Doesn't matter what you "meant" those terms to mean, matters only what is written in the contract.
You also have to consider your local rental market with regard to mitigation.
Mitigation requires you to re-rent as soon as reasonably possible and you don't sue until the place is re-rented and you can total up your losses.
The longer it takes you to re-rent the more strongly you will have to prove that extraordinary circumstances beyond your control prevented the acquisition of a new tenant.
