lease renewal nightmare--help!!

Posted by Paul Mozdziak on July 11, 1998 at 17:12:10:

I've rented in an apartment complex for quite some time (9 years to be exact).
Well my lease came up for renewal, and the landlord left a form asking if "I would"
renew my lease--and I signed off saying that I would renew my lease for
another year at such and such rate.
Well some circumstances changed very quickly and I'm moving out.
My current lease expires on July 31, 1998.

The renewal notice was followed by a formal lease that I NEVER signed,
and I returned stating that I'm moving out.
The complex has informed me that I am liable/responsible for finding a
sublettor until July 31, 1999, and it's up to the rental agent
how much help I'll get.

I can see the perspective of the complex, but MY perspective is that I
never signed a formal lease so I'm off the hook.

How can I settle this situation without the trouble of finding a sublettor!
or can I settle this situation without finding a sublettor or abandoning the

thanks much!!
