Landlord. IL. Notified my landlord in late September that my
notified my landlord in late September that my wife and I would be breaking our lease and moving out at the end of October. Our lease agreement states that “if the tenant moves prior to the end of the rental agreement, the landlord must make a good faith effort to find a new tenant at a fair rate.” My wife and I have listed the place on Craigslist and Facebook marketplace and have showed it to about a dozen potential tenants, of those we had 2 people apply and get declined (1 of who had an overall TurboTenant rating of ‘Recommend').

FYI, I paid November rent in good faith even though we moved Oct 30. … read more

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.
