Termination of Lease -- Co-op

Posted by Michele on August 18, 2000 at 20:57:50:

My boyfriend and I just moved into this apartment in Montgomery County, Maryland, a co-op on August 1. I alone signed the lease because my boyfriend has sucky credit and couldn't pass a credit check. Within 2 weeks of moving, he decides he wants to move out. Now I'm stuck with a rent I can't afford.

The lease states that I can terminate the lease "at the end of the initial term by providing Lessor with at least sixty (60) days notice". Also, a letter from the building management states that, according to "House Rules", if a tentant fails to remain in teh lease for a period of 12 months, the unit may not be leased again until the original term of the lease is expired.

The question is: am I screwed? Does this mean that the landlord will be unable to rent the apartment, and in turn will sue me if I leave? Can the landlord sublease the apartment, or assign the lease?
