I am a Florida licensed attorney.
Is this lease residential or commercial?
Does it contain a provision for early termination?
Is it possible you may be in breach of the lease for some reason?
Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.
I just noticed that you said you did NOT sign a new lease. So, you are a month to month tenant?
Expert:  Loren replied 1 year ago.
Have you asked the landlord if it is possible to stay? Perhaps with a slight increase in rent the landlord would withdraw the termination.
