Thanks for your question.
I am sorry you are in this difficult situation.
Are you saying your landlord agreed that you could end your lease and so you moved out and now, later on, she is coming after you?
Well that is not acceptable. There is no changing one's mind.
When there is an offer and an acceptance of that offer there is a binding contract.Had she not agreed then you would be on the hook for the difference until the end of your lease. But she did agree.
If her father is a lawyer and knows the truth he knows that a verbal contract in this case is binding.
So you can tell her what I've explained and then say you are happy to have a court decide.
Does that help as a starting point?Please feel free to post back with any follow-up questions you may have. If you don't have any then I hope I have earned a 5 star rating but if you don't feel that I have please don't hesitate to reply back and let me know what more I can do to assist you. Finally, please know that even after you rate me I will be here for you and you can ask follow-up questions if you think of them later on at no further charge of course.
If not then they will sue you in Small Claims Court and you can self-represent.
And then I will happily help you through the process.
