    Default Automatic Renewal on Apartment Lease But I Want to Move Out

    My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Pennsylvania

    My apartment lease renewed automatically for a year.
    My original lease was for 6 months and I thought that after my original lease term, I would be paying month to month.
    I sent them the 60 day written notice that I will be moving out in June via mail and when I went by the office today and they told me that I have to pay an extra two months rent because the lease was renewed for a year just a few months prior.

    I am unemployed at the moment and cannot afford to pay the two months rent.
    In fact, the very reason I want to move out is because I cannot afford the rent.

    I do not recall receiving anything about a lease renewal although they claimed that they had someone drop it off in our mailbox.

    I know that this question is very ambiguous but is there any room for negotiation with my landlord?

    Again, I'm really sorry for this ambiguous question.

    Default Re: to Move Out; Automatic Renewal on Apartment Lease

    We cannot tell you if there is room for negotiation with the landlord.

    You might consider discussing whether they would be agreeable to you finding a suitable tenant to take your place (such a person would need to go through any screening process they require). That might be one option they might consider.
