***RESOLVED*** How can I terminate my lease early (only been here 3 weeks) ***RESOLVED***
However, a house that is absolutely PERFECT for us just came on the market and we want to buy it. Our apartment is in Missouri, we have a 1-year lease, and we have only been here since May 7th, 2011.
I checked our lease and here is what it says verbatim:
Quote :EARLY TERMINATION: If Tenant vacates premises prior to April 30, 2012, Tenant shall forfeit the security deposit as damages for early termination, and shall continue to pay rent until such time as the new tenant takes occupancy of the premises, or until lease expiration, whichever occurs first.
However, I was wondering if Missouri law allows any way for us to get out of the lease since we have been here less than 1 month.
Googling on this has turned up diddly-squat so far and my lawyer doesn't answer his phone on the weekend
Your help on this would be greatly appreciated.
