Lawyer: Phillips Esq., Attorney-at-Law replied 8 months ago

I am sorry to read about your difficulties. However, if you are leaving the country very soon, why would you want to bother about paying the penalty in the first place? The apartment complex cannot come after you when you are outside the country. My suggestion is to ignore the request and move out when you are intending to move out and be sure to hand over your apartment keys to the management and get written acknowledgement that you have handed over the keys to the apartment.

You can request for a reduction. However, it is unlikely that a greedy management would accept it. More importantly, I am not sure why you want to pay any fee in the first place when you are leaving the country.

Best wishes,

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
