Hi. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney. I would be happy to provide assistance. Please give me a moment to formulate a response. Also, please keep in mind that our conversation does not include an attorney-client relationship and this is for general information purposes only.

Ask Your Own Legal Question

Under the circumstances you described the landlord would be entitled to collect up to the amount of the lease that you have not paid. For example, if you terminate with 6 months left, the landlord would be entitled to 6 months rent.

However, the landlord does have an obligation to re-let the property and reduce his damages. Therefore, your best option is to discuss with your landlord you need to terminate the lease early. You will want to provide the landlord with a concrete a move-out date and permit him to show the property to prospective new tenants.

Thank you so much for allowing me to help you with your question. I have done my best to provide information which fully addresses your question. If you have any follow-up or clarification questions, please ask! There is no additional fee. If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction, I would appreciate you rating my service (hopefully Excellent/5 stars!). Otherwise, I receive no credit for assisting you today. I thank you in advance for taking the time to provide me a positive rating!

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.
