My 1 month lease expires on September 1st. I already signed a month-to-month elsewhere but I want to stay where I am. What can I do?
Is there any way at all? I thought when the lease expired I had to leave. The rent is the same in both places. This one I would be moving to is adjacent to a busy road, dirty…. I really shouldn’t have signed on, but it was the best I could find. Is there any way I can fix my mistake? I was reading the Ontario residential tenancies act and it looks like I could have stayed here. My lease was only for a month. If I could have stayed, how DOES someone rent a place out for only a month, and be sure the tenant will be gone at the end of it?
A lease is a written promise, so you have to honor your word, you could go beg your way out of it if you go now, or find some one else to sub lease it to, but you are responsible for the lease once you sign it. At this point the best thing you can do it try to make a sub-lease for your apartment. However make sure you aren’t breaking the rules of your lease agreement or rental agreement. The rules can vary from state to state, so make sure you do your homework before assuming anything! Get the facts about the rental agreement you signed on a month-to-month basis. Then make your decision based on that, not what you want to do to save money. Your landlord may sue you and come after the rent you don’t pay!
