Ask a Lawyer and Get Answers to Your Legal Questions
I am sorry, I do no have good news. You are still required to finish your lease. The good news is often landlords will allow you out of the lease if you explain the situation. Often in these cases the landlord will ask that you pay one month rent, so they can get the rental cleaned, and ready fora new tenet. (Which sure beats going to court for the full lease).
If your landlord is being pushy and refuses to allow you out of the lease your only option is to either continue the lease or break it and wait for the courts to decide what you owe for the broken lease if the landlord takes you to court. Generally in CO the courts will order 1-3 months in rents based on how long it takes to get the rental released out. If the landlord can get it leased within 30 days you would only be held liable for the 30 days and possibly the advertising costs to get it released out.
I wish you the best,
