I recently bought a house and plan on moving in by the end of April. The final month in our lease is May (meaning our last day on the lease is May 31). I have a reletting fee of 1020 and the rent is 1215 per month. If I pay the final month's rent, will I still owe the reletting fee. Just curious because I'm trying to determine if it's worth it to pay a reletting fee to get out early, or pay a full month's final rent and have some extra time to move. I just want to make sure I won't have to pay the final month's rent and a reletting fee.
Without being able to read your lease, it's difficult to tell whether or not you will have to pay this additional fee. Perhaps you should consult with a real estate attorney familiar with residential leases to get the best answer.
