My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Florida
On October 2011 I signed a lease agreement until June 30. On that date I informed the leasing agent that I was only staying until the end of the lease. On June 22 I called to remind them that I was leaving and was told that I needed to give them 60 days notice before vacating the apartment. When I explained that the lease was done and that was I informed at the moment of signing they stated that someone else was going to call me. When the other person called she informed me at first that it is actually 30 day notice not 60 day. Then she said that I needed to returned the keys exactly on the 30 of June not the 25 of June when I express I was going to come by, she stated that I would be in violation of my lease agreement. Then she stated that at the point of returning the keys I the apartment will be checked and all charges will be send to me. I informed her that I pre paid my apartment and she still claimed the same. After reading on several forums I realized that is from 15 to 30 days. Now why does it makes a difference if I provide written notice prior to the 30. It just seems like they want to charge more. I obtained an example of a noticed of vacancy can I send to email today in order to do June 22 to July 22 instead of waiting? Can I request the 15 days notice clause being that I informed at the moment of signing?
