There was no renewal of a lease at this time. After that lease ended I was looking for a new apt where my roommate was planning on staying.

July 7 I did receive an offer to move to a new location....Informing my landlord that I may be leaving in 30 days...After thinking about it, I decided not to accept the new apt, informing my landlord of this.whereas my LL all of the sudden springs a lease on us, kind of 'out of spite', for us to sign(another 6 month) keep me there cause we are such good tenants.SO Im thinking that she is doing this just because she knows that I am looking for a new place..With not enough time...She basically 'forced' us to sign it when she knocked on the door, no time to consider...Not knowing how long it would actually take to find a new apt I signed the new lease.+ regret it now.I really want to get out...

B. What could be my other options be
