My lease is up 2/29. I brought a letter from my doctor

Customer Question

My lease is up 2/29. I brought a letter from my doctor stating that I have to move out to be with family. I am 75 and not in the best of health, so I will be moving in with my daughter, a nurse on 1/17/16. My two week departure before rent is due again. They will not give me the rent I have paid that will cover my gone days from here from the 17th to the 3rd. Is this legal?Thank you,Lynne Halvorson***@******.*** or(###) ###-####
