We are relocating because of school zoning issues and sent the landlord a certified letter letting her know what our intentions are and that we will be vacating by Aug. 1. Our lease is through Sept. 30. We paid 1st, last and security deposit. In essence, if the landlord did not agree to let us break the lease, we'd be liable for Aug rent. In light of this, the landlord quickly listed the home for rent as well as for sale and 10 days later, she has a contract for purchase. She listed it to be available for move in by July 15. If she has a contract and we're out by July 15th, wouldn't she have to pay us not only our security deposit, but a month and a half rent for that has already been paid to her, as we will have to be out by the 15th and she has already sold the home?
