Hello! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney with more than 18 years of experience. I am here to assist you with your questions. Please understand that if I ask you for additional information, you are NOT charged again and our communications are NOT timed. So please see this as a relaxed conversation between friends. I am here to help
Also, if you would like to chat on the phone, let me know and I can make that happen.
I am sorry for this dilemma. If she signed the lease? Then the lease can be enforced. She can not just "withdraw" without permission. If she were to do so, she could be sued for breach of contract.
She may want to consider negotiating with the landlord to see if she can "buy out" the contract...if she can reach agreement with the landlord to pay to have the lease cancelled she can avoid a potential suit
This is the part of my job I don't like...when the law is not in favor of my customer. I wish I could tell you that she can simply withdraw from the lease, but I can only provide you information based on the law so that you can act on the best available information to you...I wish I had better news, but can only hope you recognize and understand my predicament and don't shoot the messenger. I'm sorry!
Please let me know if you have more questions. I am happy to help if I can. Otherwise, please rate the answer so I may get credit for my work.
