Usually the lease tells tenants they are not liable for tenants personal property.

This is why tenant's insurance is so important! The property owner's insurance covers owners property and not tenants property or off premise living expenses. Tenant's insurance is very inexpensive and pays for expenses incurred during a fire.

As a tenant many years ago, the unity under mine had a fire and we had much smoke damage. Thankfully, my insurance paid for me to live elsewhere during the clean up and it replaced or cleaned damaged property. I think it took about 4 months for them to restore my unit. I was glad I had the coverage.

I signed the lease when my husband was away, and the landlord said he would send it to us for my husband to sign. He never did in spite of us asking several times. That was seven months ago, and now we can no longer afford the rent and want to move. We paid first and last month's rent and security deposit, and we are in Florida.

You are still obligated for the lease and it's not the landlords problem that you can't afford it. He might be willing to allow you to walk away and lose your security deposit rather than dealing with an eviction, but don't expect to get your security or last months rent back. You need to talk to the landlord, but the fact that your husband didn't sign the lease is irrelevent.

In my opinion it depends on the handicap. Many people with handicap stickers don't really need the space. If you are in a wheelchair then you need a space where you know when you come back to your car there is not going to be someone parked so close to yours you can't get in or operate your lift gate.

On the other hand someone with maybe a heart condition can park say another 50 feet away and not have a problem they have different priorities. In other words they take up a space a wheelchair person really needs just because they can, even if there is an empty space right next to it. I see this all the time. I often find handicaped people themselves to be about the most abusive with the use of handicapped spaces just because they can, With no regard for those who really need those extra wide spaces.

Every apartment I lived in prior to buying a house had an early termination clause written into it. It usually required 60 days notice plus loss of security deposit. These were large, corporate-managed apartment complexes though. That may not be standard if renting a house from an individual or a small property management company. It can always be negotiated though before signing the lease.

What we ended up doing was waiting until the lease was up and then instead of resigning, we went month-to-month with it (for a $75/mo premium) until we bought a house.

It would depend on what you agree to in writing.
