Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship.
I am guessing that the 45 days notice is notice to not extend the lease but if it is notice to terminate the lease early and it is provided by the lease then you can give notice to the landlord like you planned. The problem is if your boyfriend wants to stay. If he does then you would still be liable until the end of the lease term. If you both leave and the lease does not have an early termination then you could be liable until the end of the lease term. An exception to this would be if the landlord finds a new tenant in the 45 days and they move in after you move out. The landlord cannot charge double rent and you would not be liable for the lease if someone takes your place and pays rent immediately. I would require your landlord to sign a new lease and take your name off it or you could have future problems but the landlord must get full rent if you move out and not just partial rent from your boyfriend.
