The landlord has decided that he wants to live in the apartment...the rent is no longer covering his expenses. The lease gives the landlord the option to terminate it with a 60 day notice and return of one months rent for tentants disruption. Yes the lease is not due to expire until May 2014. There is no breach on the part of the tenants.
Thanks that is what I was thinking. Morally it would probably be the right thing to do to give the tenant back the security deposit and not make him liable for rent when he is willing to vacate in 30 days, when the landlord is the one asking him to leave but legally he doesn't have to.
Thanks again have a nice night.
