My daugther rented an apartment and needs to get out of the lease. Upon reviewing the lease, we noticed that the rental dates are March 27, 2006 through March 28, 2007, but at the top of the lease, it mentions the full amount to be paid in a twelve month period. Since the lease dates are as they are, are we required to re-sign the lease, and if so, can we now break it? She lost her job and is unable to pay the rent and would like to move in with me.
Also, they owe her a 500 referral fee, which, of course, we would waive. They are trying to get out of paying it. Initially she was going to give it to a friend who moved in the same complex, and while the friend signed a document saying she was referred, and they did in fact credit her the $500.00, my daughter was also suppose to sign a document relingishing the funds. She never did and wanted to apply it to her rent. They rescinded it from the friend, but won’t apply it to my daughters account, althought hey are benefiting from the referral. They are now saying the friend has to acknoledge she was referred. Its annoying, because the friend did not have to do so when she recieved the initial credit. I know its confusing, please. Can you help?
