I'm currently 6 months into a 1 year written lease for a bachelor unit in an apartment. I wish to break the lease so I can move out of Los Angeles and into a new job in San Diego.
The difficulty is that after I submit my 30-day intention to vacate notice, the leasing agents have informed me that I'm also subject to a $250 cancellation fee plus responsibility of rental fees until the end of the lease (9/15/00). If they manage to find a replacement for my unit, then I will no longer be responsible for rent, however, they will not allow me to find a replacement on my own.
The leasing contract has early termination clauses all crossed out. It will be difficult to support rent in two places simultaneously if we suppose that the AvalonBay management is unable to find a replacement within a resonable amount of time after my date of vacancy (4/5/00).
I'd like to know if I have any rights as to whether or not I am able to break the lease peacefully in this situation. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
