Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it was a 12 month lease signed on 7/8/2017
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

the wrong address will not change the situation of the legal obligation.

you may be able to break the lease without penalty with there is a serious health problem with the property or it is unsafe to occupy.

where you need to break the lease, you will incur a break fee

the best option is to negotiate with the landlord as this often works out well

would you like to consider this option ?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
im willing to negotiate but it will make me feel a lot more confident in negotiation if i understand whether or not the agreement is legally valid or not. If they were to enforce the lease it will cost an extra $8000+
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 4 months ago

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.
