Re: Leaving apartment 1 1/2 month in advance

View Post
Hi! I have suffered from my landlady since the beginning and now that I want to leave it looks like it won't be the end. I found another apartment to start October 1st and I told her late August. She told me that I needed to provide her with a candidate that would take over the lease, but it would be up to her to decide.

September 1st, I gave her 6 dossiers of solvable people (salary was more than 3x the rent for all of them), and they were all interested. It took her 1 week to start calling somebody and she only called two of them, but it took her so long to make an appointment to "meet" them, that they found another place in the meantime. She didn't call the other 4 because she said "they don't suit her". I've had a look at the conditions of my lease and it clearly says that I need to provide ONE valid candidate interested at least one month in advance, but then it's up to the owner to reach an agreement or not.

I'm concerned about her trying to make me pay the month of October just because she's so picky, and because it has taken ages for her to react. I have been showing the apartment non stop and I don't want to start fighting or anything, but I'm foreseeing that she won't have anyone by the end of the month, and she has my 3 month deposit, so I'm clearly in disadvantage. Any advice?

Please do use the forum search, this has been discussed ad nauseam already.

Early departure from the apartment
