In Reply to: Tenants right to terminate lease??? posted by M. Storms on December 18, 2000 at 13:26:27:
If you signed a lease for a specific term you have agreed to rent the apartment for that term and are bound by the lease. Any exceptions would be spelled out in the lease (one additional exception is for active-duty military personell who receive transfer orders, although you must inform your LL at lease siging that you are the military).
So your landlord is probably right that you can be held for the rent until he is able to re-rent the place. Of course, if you and he have been on good terms, you might come up with an alternate agreement, particularly if you give him plenty of notice and agree to let him show the apartment or refer a qualified tenant to him.
