Legal Question

Asked on: 9/20/13, 11:25 am

I signed an a lease for a room in August. After discovering the room was less than desirable i informed my landlord about 4 days later I wished to terminate the lease. He agreed under the condition that I pay my first months rent. I agreed and he refunded my last and security. Today, sept 20 he is saying that I owe him money for October because the room has not yet been rented out. When I replied that the matter was settled he said I was legally obligated to pay but he would be willing to let the whole thing slide if I just gave him 225 dollars. Should I have to pay at all? Should I take the deal? I feel like I'm just being taken advantage of and everything should be settled. But I did sign a lease. What should I do?
