Termination on Housing Agreement

Posted by Irene Arevalo on February 08, 2001 at 11:08:12:

Landlord: Florida International University, Miami, FLorida

I signed a Housing Agreement to cover Fall 2001 on January 2nd, 2000 ($1668), without reading my rights and duties. After reading the terms, I requested in writing the cancellation of this Agreement the next day on January 3, 2001.

The Housing Director mantains her position that I am liable for the agreement, and although I have not used the premises, I should pay the full amount. Nevertheless, they have released the space, and they have notified me about in writing. I refused to sign their CANCELLATION FORM because it implies that I am accepting to be liable for payment.

My question is: can a tenant terminate a Housing Agreement within 24 hours notice based upon the fact that I signed unconsciously without reading the terms, and the personel of the Housing Division did not advise me to do so prior to signing? Please advise.
