Before I was able to retrieve my belonging, the home was vandalized causing me to lose a significant amount of expensive musical equipment..what options are available to me in the way of restitution?

I own a townhouse that I am renting. The two tenant who

I own a townhouse that I am renting. The two tenant who signed the lease have sublet part of the property to another family. I have a property manager who used ther leaser For Members Only Apartment Association: California Southern Cities. Approved Form #F11-10/13.This lease states in #7 ASSIGNMENT AND SUBLETTING _ Resident may not assign all or any portion of the Agreement nor shall Resident sublet all or any portion of the premises. Any attempt at assignment or subletting shall be void and an irremediable breach of this agreement. MY QUESTION: SINCE THEY DID HAVE ANOTHER FAMILY move in to share the rent does this VOID THEIR ONE YEAR LEASE? A 3 day Cure or Quit notice was served and there is no change # of residents. I do not want to serve an eviction notice. Can their lease now become month to month because the subletting is an irremediable breach of their lease.

I have recently run into a situation with my leasing company

Good morning everyone. I have recently run into a situation with my leasing company and am looking for a lawyer's opinion on the issue.Here's a brief rundown: The leasing company and I agreed to terminate my 12-month lease a month early with the conditions that: I find a new tenant to sign a 12-month lease, they sign, and I am responsible for rent up until their lease is signed. We agreed upon these terms in writing via email. I found new tenants, they were approved, and I was informed via email by the leasing company that the new tenants would be signing a new lease starting August 1st and therefore my responsibility for rent ended July 31. They never informed me that a lease had actually been signed, and I stupidly did not get confirmation on this before signing a new lease of my own.Where we are now: It is now July 29 and the leasing company emailed me this morning to let me know that the new tenants have decided not to move in until August 15 (estimated) so that the leasing company has time to complete repairs and maintenance. They told me I am responsible for rent up until the date the new lease starts. After talking to the tenants, I found out that the tenants and leasing company had already signed a lease starting August 1st. After this lease was signed, the two parties (leasing company and new tenants) mutually agreed to terminate the lease and to sign a second lease to start once repairs have been finished. They do not yet know the date this new lease will start.My question: Am I 100% responsible for rent up until this second, new lease is signed? Since the two parties already technically signed a lease (even if it was terminated), doesn't my responsibility end? Or does my responsibility for the unit only end after the second lease is signed?Any advice would be appreciated! Thanks!

We have tenants that want to break their lease early. We

We have tenants that want to break their lease early. We have them for a 12 month lease and they have only been living in our unit since March 1st and it's mid July. My husband and I own a duplex in Indianapolis Indiana and live in one side and rent out the other. They want to purchase a new home and haven't made an offer on a home as of yet, so there is no definite move out date. We told them that once they have a moving date that we will start showing their place, but they will be responsible for their rent until we find a suitable renter. They said in so many words that they don't trust us and think that we are going to sit on the unit. Our tenants said that they want break their lease and pay us a months rent when they leave to help us out, that this is fair. My husband and I said that we want to stick with the lease and find a suitable renter, then our tenants threatened us saying that they have a lawyer and their lawyer said by law that they could sublet their unit if they wanted to. We have in our lease that it's at our soul discretion if they can sublet our not. My husband and I feel like we are being pushed into a corner. We do not know the subletting laws in the State of Indiana and what our options are with dealing with our tenants.Thank yo for your help.Joan

A couple months ago I signed a lease year and now I have to

A couple months ago I signed a lease for a year and now I have to move out. Reason I want to terminate the lease is b/c my girlfriend and I broke up b/c she cheated and now is dating another man. Also unfortunately she's on the lease so things are more complicated. The rental resides in Los Angeles. I want to know all the possible options I have to get out of the lease before I talk with the rental company on the phone. Also what should I be on the lookout for and how can I best protect myself so there aren't any serious reprocussions from the rental company.

My roommate wants to break our lease. she recently got

My roommate wants to break our lease. she recently got pregnant and wants to buy a house and not pay for a lease anymore. I don't mind breaking the lease, I'm just not willing to pay the money required to break the lease. the total amount to break the lease is 3400. she does not want to pay the total and therefore says i have to pay 1700 and she has to pay 1700. i find that that is a wast of money and do not want to pay that much to break the lease. she now says that if i do not pay to break the lease that she will not pay the rent therefore destroying both mine and her credit. how can i protect myself?
