In one of the cases we dealt with, the lessors signed contracts with our clients, but always postponed the start of the lease. They renovated a building and gave the excuse that the work lasted longer than expected. Customers realized that something wasn`t moving when they saw someone else enter the building. Although frustrating, a tenant can change their mind at any time before signing a lease. Until the contract is signed, there is nothing that obliges them to rent the property and they cannot be forced to do so. We just got the lease of the apartment about 3 days before we found out the family member we live with got sick and now we have to stay where we are to take care of them. The deposit and rent fully paid, we even turned on the light, in the meantime, until the 1st. To be in the apartment. But due to these circumstances, we cannot honor our lease. We feel really horrible about the situation and we talked to our broker.
What is the worst Senario case? We ask for the refund of at least half of our money, because we would have to pay the bills of the house in which we are currently.

Please call me. Sure, he`s angry, but I don`t think his time deserves to follow anything. Be sure of your decision next time before signing the lease! You got away with one. Hello, I just arrived in Texas a week ago for my graduate studies. In fact, I want to break the lease because all my friends live in another apartment. The date of the move of the signed apartment is August 18.
Yesterday I told the owner that I couldn`t move in. He was rude and asked me to pay $250 in cancellation fees and find someone to replace the same apartment number. When I registered online, Landlord hadn`t signed yet. Although I have signed, they have not yet sent me the confirmation letter. Now they threaten me with the above sentence. Since I`m new to this place and don`t know anyone, how can I find someone? Someone can tell me what to do in this situation. (What if I didn`t come to the U.S. and I`m still in my home country) Our withdrawal date was set for June 1st, so we booked the engineer for broadband etc. To assemble, but then, a week before the end, the owner says that she withdraws.
