I decided to move out only one week after i signed a 1 year lease. I notified the apartment management and per their instructions I have to give 60 days notice plus a reletting fee. I did not receive a copy of the lease at signing because they said the manager was not in and she had to sign.
Lawsuit / Dispute Attorney
If you signed a lease and the apartment rented to you after your signing the lease (meaning they accepted the lease), you are bound by the lease. As far as a copy of the lease, the landlord should either provide you a copy of the lease, or allow you to make a copy of the lease.
