The lease on our rental home ends September 30, 2013. But because we have to move out of state in mid-August, we have paid our rent through September 30th to satisfy our lease and meet our legal obligation to the landlord. However, we found out that another couple is moving into our home in mid-August. Are we entitled to a refund to the rent we paid from mid-August through September 30th, or can our landlord collect two rents for the same time period?

Hello. Please view the materials on the Minnesota Attorney General website. Contact a private attorney then, in the event you face any issue. Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will confer initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.
