Updating a year lease letter
After 60 days, the tenant's estate is not liable for any further rent.
If the unit is surrendered by the estate prior to the completion of the 60 days, then a landlord would have to mitigate damages in the same way as if the lease had been broken.
The landlord does not need to serve a new notice if they calculate it wrong in writing, you go with the correct date based on when they served it.
If your lease says that you must give more than a 28 day notice, that is valid and enforceable, even if the lease has since expired.
If you have roommates and you are the only one moving out, subletting may be your only option.
See our For example: If your landlord gives you a notice on the 10th of May saying you need to be out by the end of May, there won't be 28 days before the end date so the notice is insufficient.
The lease would still be valid for any remaining co-tenants (for instance, a living spouse who was named on the lease).
If the landlord refuses to sign a lease with similarly qualified potential tenants you have found to re-rent the apartment, remind the landlord that it is their duty to mitigate and that if they don't sign the lease, it will be evidence that they are not mitigating and you will no longer be required to pay rent for the apartment. If you sublet, you will still be on the lease, even though you will no longer be living in the apartment.
The landlord can hold one or any tenant responsible. Mitigate: The landlord's legal duty to minimize lost rent and other re-rental costs after a tenant is evicted by actively seeking a replacement tenant. Usually in monthly increments, the rental period begins on the day that you are required to pay rent, and ends the day before you are next required to pay rent. If the new tenant fails to fulfill responsibilities, the original tenant remains responsible.
If a lease contains a section or language that attempts to waive your rights defined in the Landlord-Tenant Act that particular section is considered unenforceable. No rental agreement may forego your rights or remedies, require you to pay attorney’s fees that aren’t authorized by law, indemnify the landlord from costs they are responsible, or create a lien against the tenant’s property. If a landlord deliberately includes this kind of language in the lease with the knowledge it is prohibited the tenant can seek up to a 0 penalty, damages, court cost and attorney fees.
Please see Tenants and landlords can both choose to end a lease when the lease term is over (for example, a year long lease with no automatic renewal clause).
The landlord has no legal obligation to renew the lease, unless: Automatic Renewal Clause: A clause in a lease that has it continue for another whole term after the current term is over, with no further written agreement between tenant and landlord.
If the person you sublet to does not pay the rent or damages the apartment, you will be financially responsible.
