My apartment lease is through August 8, 2013. They are making the entire building move out by August 12, 2013 for construction renovation. I have lived here since May, 2008. I paid a $400.00 deposit when I moved in. I want to give a 30 day notice to quit the lease on July 1st for August 1st.
Since the apartment will not be "rentable" to anyone for those 12 days in August, do I have to pay for the 8 days of August that I will not be here?
How can I get out of paying for the 8 days in August?
