So we were told we are free to walk away from our lease. No early termination fee required (two months per lease and 30 day notice )

They do have our 30 day notice and rent payment.


For now everything seems to be smooth sailing but it has all been verbal. Common sense states I need something in writing just to be safe that collection agency won't come knocking. This property management company is pretty big so I figure they may have some sort of form being such a big company but if not what kind of wording should I prepare and hope they sign? Also what should I do if they don't want to sign anything?

My gut feeling is nothing further will develop as to collections/court case since they are sure to have the property rented soon (was told they have a waiting list) but you never know right? People often say one thing and do something else so having something in writing gives me peace of mind.

Do you have an email address for the person or someone in that group that gave you the verbal? You could say, "just confirming per our phone call that .....". Worst case scenario they don't reply and you at least have something showing you reached out to confirm. Best case scenario they reply and agree.

Of course the absolute best would just be to call and ask for an official letter stating what they stated verbally.

Dig out your paper copy of your lease.
Xerox the page with the termination clause.
Line through and rewrite the new terms as agreed.

IN PERSON... show them what you have and ask for their signature.
Edit as needed but insist on the signature and date

Thanks for the ideas guys. I will do as MrRational suggested and hope they sign it. If not I'll try the email route.
