My fiance and I are currently in an apartment rental lease until February 2013. My fiance lost his job last month and his unemployment may take several more weeks to come in. There is no way we can come up with the money we need by September 5th and still provide for our two children. We technically have until the 13th of the month, but after the 8th you are charged a $30 late fee plus a $250 lawyers fee. However, we were late once before (after the 8th; the only time we were late in 2 years) and they only allow one late payment. Even if we spent no money at all on food, power, car insurance (etc), we STILL wouldnt have enough. How can i legally get out of this lease and/or what can I do to avoid having a huge bill to pay after eviction?
