Did you get the notice from LL in writing to move out by Nov. 1? Next time get it in writing. In the meantime, help to speed the tenant search along by finding someone reliable to take over the apartment...put out ads if you have to. Keep all receipts and make copies just in case.
If you said you'd move out in 45 days, and offered to stay, then the LL is taking advantage. Find a good tenant or two now for the LL to look at and write to remind LL of previous note (attach copy of that letter to it) and say you are sticking to the 45 day deadline. Send it fedex, signature upon receipt so you have evidence in case LL decides to get dumb. Check your lease for any other surprises you might be in for about terminating the lease. Good luck.
: I gave 45 days notice to break my lease. And, in writing, expressed that I would stay on as long as it too to find a new tenant.
: On 9/22 I was told that the apartment was rented for 11/1. So, I moved forward, moved out, and got a new place for 11/1. Now, on 10/23 I am told that the new renters backed out and I would be responsible for the November rent.
: I find that really hard to beleive, especially since they told me it was rented and I'd need to move out. Do I need to get a lawyer? should i go to small claims court because its only $1850 a month and not worth spending more on a lawyer?
