Ask a landlord-tenant lawyer and get answers ASAP
Hello I am a licensed practicing attorney with 20 years’ experience hopefully I can help with your problem. Please give me a moment to review and respond to your question.
Are you being charged twice for two different leases on the same property?
Even if you are not living on the premises if you signed a lease the landlord is entitled to continue charging you rent. If you stop paying rent altogether the landlord could sue you for the remaining balance that is owed on the lease contract.
If the landlord were to re-rent the space than this would allow you to stop paying rent. You should tell the landlord that you are no longer living there and that she need to re-rent to someone else. If she does that then she can not charge you any longer.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
