Lease Termination before Initial Term Begins
I signed to renew with my current landlord in March. My current lease term ends July 31, 2008, and I wanted to terminate the upcoming lease contract, which doesn't begin until August 1, 2008. I will be out of my apartment by July 31. I wanted to know what legal obligations I would be under by ending the contract before it even begins? Would I still follow the early termination policy set forth in the lease, even though the lease will never actually begin, since I will be out July 31 and it doesnt' start until Aug. 1?
