I recently signed a lease three days ago to move into an apartment. I don't actually move in for another 30 days. I was offered a very good amount that's stupid to refuse in the place I am currently living. Since I have paid the rental and pet deposit, plus the pro-rated move in amount already. Can I back out of that agreement and still get all my money back? They've already cashed the check.

I doubt you get your deposit or any other money you have already paid back but they MAY let you out of your lease without a problem. I bet they could try and hold you to it too. It just depends on the complex/ people you are leasing from. I have had experiences with both. We actually moved out a month early on a lease, one that had given us a free month's rent, because we had an opportunity to move into a house and we didn't want to pass it up. Well, the complex went back and charged us for our "free month" so now it shows up on our credit report. Just have to discuss your situation with the people you are renting from and maybe they will have a heart and let you out without any consequences but again, I would be surprised if they refunded any of your money. Best of luck to you.

I am an assistant manager at an apartment community and I can tell you now, you are not going to get your money back, I am sorry. They aren't just going to break the lease either-you are probably going to have a problem with that. Look in your lease when it comes to "move in" and "lease breaks"-see what their policy is. I know here we have them pay back their special and then they pay market rate on the unit until it's leased out (and we always try to get it leased).

There is no way you will get your deposit back or probably any of the other money you've already paid. They MAY let you out of the lease, but it is legally binding, so they can also hold you to it. I would explain yourself and see what they think; however, definitly don't agree to stay in your current place yet! You don't want to get stuck in two leases.

We're all speculating here. READ YOUR LEASE AGREEMENT!
