Re: Breaking a Sublease Agreement Under a Violation of Clauses
so, if they tell you they are going to make noise, they have followed the terms of the agreement, right?
The Tenant and the Subtenant agree to the following conditions:
Respect of work/sleep schedule, advance notification of potential disturbances, cleaning will be done by tenants (but please clean up after yourself!)
as to the respect of work/sleep schedules; without any other verbiage to clarify what that means and what happens if the rule is not followed, you don't really have anything there.
and the cleaning: you are a tenant. clean up the mess and that rule will have been followed. If you fail to clean up the place, you are as much in violation of that clause as the others are.
so, the worst you are going to get dinged for is apr 1- apr 25 (as long as you provide what ever notice is required per your agreement)
Your agreement doesn't really allow you much leverage as it is quit incomplete.
regardless, I would simply move and if they want money, tell them to sue you and argue it in court. If you lose, you pay them for those 3 1/2 weeks.
Oh, and unless ALL the actual tenants to the lease (not yours, the one between the college kids and their LL) are parties to your rental agreement, nobody but the one kid that signed with you is bound by your agreement. The rest of them can make all the noise and have all the parties they want and you have no recourse based on your agreement.
