View Full Version : Question about Lease Terms

February 19th, 2004, 05:13 PM
I would like to know if it is legally possible to withdraw from a lease signed to move into an apartment if the move in date has not yet arrived.

The company has also already taken two months rent from me (one month security deposit and one month in rent). Is this refundable if I do not want to move in any more?

The lease was signed about 8 days ago and the move in date is in about 2 weeks.

Any advice would be much appreciated..

I assume you are dealing directly with a rental building, since you did not mention anything about real estate broker. Ask the rental agent of this building that you want to withdraw the application. If they can find somebody to move in your apartment in 2 weeks, they would normally return all your money. However, and most likely, if they would find someone to move in let's say in 4 weeks, they will deduct 2 weeks worth from your deposit and return the rest.
