Hi All,

I think this forum is very helpful and I refer to it often. I am posting here as I had a question regarding my lease agreement. I am about to break the lease and as per the lease agreement I am bound to give a 30 day notice and two month rent as a penalty. I have already given my notice and earlier this week I called the leasing office to withdraw my notice. I was told that I could not as they had already rented my apartment.

My question is since apartment has been rented again, am I still liable for these charges. Looking at Virginia Landlord tenant laws a landlord can charge the rent till the end of the of the lease or chrge the rent till it is rented out again.

My lease agreement states that if the lease is in conflict with local laws then the local laws shall prevail.

I would like to pursue this matter further but I wanted to see if someone has had similar issue and what was their experience.

Thanks,

When I broke my lease, so long as we found subletters to finish out the term, we did not owe any breakage fees.
