Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Good morning. This is not something that is required under state law but is something which they are asking for, to terminate your lease early. It is not uncommon for the rental company to ask for a penalty to break the lease early and 2 months rent, is typically the penalty. However, what they are trying to get you to first stay 60 days and pay rent and then pay an additional two months, which does not seem that "fair". In a situation like this, you can make a counter offer and see if they would take the two months rent as a penalty and you agree to leave on X date. This way, you vacate and they can re-rent it and at the same time, they have the 2 months penalty
