My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Florida
This is my first time renting and I wasn't aware that I had to give notice 30 days before my lease expired. Apparently I was suppose to tell them by 8/1 that I'm moving out, and since I didn't I now HAVE to extend a month and pay $1,125 for that month (even though I was paying $1,050).
However, the lease says this:
Is "the notice period" the 30 days? And if it's based on the "daily pro-rata rental amount" shouldn't it be based off of the $1,050 I was paying?Resident or Landlord may terminate this lease at the end of the initial Lease Term by giving the other party written notice of termination no later than thirty (30) days prior to the end of the initial lease term. If Resident fails to give notice as required and vacates the premises at the end of the lease, Resident will be charged for the balance of the notice period in an amount bases on the daily pro-rata rental amount, such amount not to exceed one month's rent. Such charge shall be considered liquidated damages under this lease agreement.
This whole thing pisses me off, I was all ready to leave.
I want out!
