Hi everyone...as some of you know, I bought a condo and closed at the end of last month. I ended up breaking the lease I had for my apartment (I had just signed it April 1). I sent my landlord a letter in May saying that I was moving out June 30....they sent me a reply that if they found a replacement, I would get my security deposit back. If not, I'd be responsible for the rent until they found another tenant. So I moved into my condo June 30, and returned the keys to my apartment to the rental office on July 3. The lady at the office said that she was not aware that I was moving out, but took my keys anyway, and took my forwarding address. I got a letter the other day dated July 11, for a rent bill w/ late charges. It said that if I did not pay within 5 business days, they would proceed with eviction. So apparently, they have not been looking for a new tenant for my old apartment. I missed a certified letter from the landlord today because I was at my parents' house this afternoon. I have to pick it up Monday. I don't know what to do. I sent them a notice in May, and they haven't looked for a tenant yet. Is this still my responsibility to pay? I have to talk to the lawyer that I used for my closing, but I don't think she has office hours on the weekend, I'd have to wait until Monday. I'm so worried because there's no way I can afford a mortgage, car payment, insurance, plus this rent. Just thinking about it makes my stomach feel like . Plus, we're having our union negotiations and we may go on strike. I'm so stressed. Has anyone been in this same situation (breaking a lease)? Any advice?
