I asked them to change the lease back to what We had signed, they said no. I do not want rent from people who do this sort of thing. I told them I was moving out and now they say I owe them for two months rent, $150.. fee for getting out with out a 60 day written notice. it comes to about $2640.00 just so I can move out. Because I made stink about it we are in court trying get out of the lease.
They are sueing me. I am being a jerk about this ( it is not right what they did )
I told them I would not pay rent until they fix this, The way I saw it, If I pay rent it means I agree with them changing my lease. All I would like is for them to not cheat people by changing the lease. I did not sign a month to month lease and I did no agree to give 60 days notice, I signed a year long lease and there was nothing about 60 days on the lease when I signed it. I called and complained as soon as we saw the error. They told us that there was nothing I could do about it. So as a jerk I refussed to pay my rent until they put it back to what I signed. I owe them for this last month and have had the money the whole month, all they had to do was put it back to what I signed.
Sorry I did not bring the whole thing out. Long and short of I'm trying to get out so I can get with someone honest. I'm sure have gone about it the wrong way.
