Legal Question

Asked on: 5/13/08, 8:31 pm


My question is: I signed a 2 year lease for a rent to own property. After 1 year, I could not afford it and was always in arrears with my rent. I gave my landlord notice that I needed to leave, because it was not fair to him that he was always getting his rent late and not even all of it. I left being in arrears by $1700. At the time I gave notice I didn't realize that I had a 2 year lease because I always had 1 year leases everywhere else I rented. My old landlord has served me with a letter stating that I owe for the year that I did not stay. He has since re rented it to new tenants. Can he get payment from me for that year and receive payment from new tenants too?
