Does anyone know how this could work? I live in California for starters. I am currently in a lease that does not end until Dec 31st of this year. However, I was recently accepted into low income housing (today in fact) and must move in by NOV 1ST or I LOSE THE APARTMENT! My lease simply states I must give a proper 30 day notice however when I called the leasing department they said I am legally responsible for the apartment for the length of the lease (meaning I have to continue to pay the rent until the lease ends or they can rent the apartment again) As I really need this low income housing unit (or I would not have applied) and my apartment now is in one of the worst areas in town, what can I do?
