Before we begin, a bit more detail would be helpful please.

Did you sign the agreement requiring 60 days notice?

Thank you.

Yes, and sat showing, sunday sign lease, and they left for Bozeman for work, school. Happen on Oct, 3rd,2013. Refuse to let me sublet out, saying they are the owners and will like to find own tenant. 2 days later Friday afternoon, email said fulfill your lease terms since you are prepaid, or leave dec 31st, and lose your 3 months prepaid rent. There must be a law that protects good tenants. Was a homeowner, hse sold, rent it from them quickly.

Thank you. Just so I understand, you can cancel the lease on 60 days notice? Why would they keep 3 months if you can cancel on 60 days? It would seem as if they were entitled to no more than 2 months.

Thank you.
