This answer was rated:

I am currently in an apt. Signed a 6 month lease (March - August), Did not renew the lease as I am purchasing a home under construction. In July, I provided them with a 60 day notice to vacate, and then rented September at a month-to-month to month rate. I was given poor mortgage advice and now I am having to go through a different mortgage company and so the closing is being pushed back 3 weeks. My apt complex is telling me I have to be out on 9/30 (the date I gave on the vacate form) as they have already rented the apartment. Do I have any rights to stay?
Hello,

I am a professional here to assist you. I appreciate your use of this service. A tenant is obligated to comply the date they stated they would vacate, but the landlord cannot force them out after that date without first. The eviction process may take weeks to remove the tenant.

So, extenuating circumstances do not mean anything. If I provide them with a letter explaining the circumstances and a check for next month's rent, would that help in any way?

Circumstances do not matter. If rent is accepted, that typically does help as the landlord has then agreed to lease to you for that month.
