breaking a residential lease
I have relocated to southern California for work. My appartment in northern CA is telling me that I will need to pay about $3000 in penalties. My rent is $1100. I was told that is I relocate a certain distance, that they can not penalize me due to the fact that I now live 500 miles away. I left my 30 notice and am willing to pay the extra month’s rent even though I am already living down south.
Can you please advise me of the CA laws regarding acceptable penanties for breaking a lease due to relocation?
