: If you verbally notified the landlord that you were moving out at the

: making them take you to coourt for the extra month's rent?
: In my other apartments you moved out when the lease was up, no problem.
: I assumed (incorrectly) that this was the case with my 3-moth lease this
: summer. Still, 3 times my roommate or I contacted the landlords and asked
: if we needed to do anything before we left. All three times we were told
: that we were all set and to just leave the keys and a forwarding address.
Don't pay it. There's no obligation to give notice at the end of a lease.
They should assume you're leaving unless you arrange otherwise.
