I live in Illinois and I am an international student and I have an urgent situation that I must leave the state. The apartments don't have my social security number if I leave without paying anything can they still track me down or what consequences would I face.
A landlord could still sue you for breaching the lease, though finding you and collections may be difficult.
If the landlord sued you (and won) the consequences would be a money judgment against you for unpaid rent and possibly attorney's fees.
Though we strive to provide accurate legal information in our answers on AVVO, our answer should not be construed as legal advice and it does not create an attorney-client relationship. Our firm only forms attorney-client relationships by written agreement signed by both our firm and the client. Please seek an in-person consultation with an attorney immediately as almost all legal matters are time sensitive and failing to meet deadlines can result in adverse consequences.
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals. Attorneys who claim their profiles and provide Avvo with more information tend to have a higher rating than those who do not.What determines Avvo Rating?Experience & background
