#1 I went in to sign a second 6 month lease on my apartment. Because I didn’t come in before the 1st of the month (per contract, lease actually ended the 31st of the month and not on the 6th, which is when my rent is due and when i moved in). They are now trying to charge me a 75 dollar month to month fee for this month only. The contract does not say anything about if you don’t renew your lease by this date then you will be charged a month to month fee. I found this out on the fourth of this month in a newsletter they stuck on my door. I went in promptly after the weekend to resign, still thinking my renew date was the sixth, which fell on a Sunday. Am I obligated to pay the 75?
#2 When I did resign my lease, the employee working resigned me at the rate I moved in on, which was a promotional rate. We both signed this document, he gave me a copy, and now they are telling me that it was wrong and want me to sign a new contract at the higher price. I told them that this wasn’t my problem, I’ve already signed the lease and they can’t make me pay the higher rent. Am I correct? Isn’t that why we have contracts?
Thank you for your time and help in this matter,
