I was staying in a apartment in San Mateo , CA and was under a 14 month lease which I had to break due to an irrational neighbor.
Now I paid a one month lease termination fee to get out. The property manager was not flexible on waiving my lease termination fee giving a dumb reason that he will have to keep the property in the market for 1 month before finding out a new tenant.
Now interestingly I moved out on July 24,2011 and the place was rented out on August 3,2011. So they charged me one full month rent on the excuse that they will not be able to rent out the property soon enough.
Now the question I have , is there any law in California that states that in case of early lease termination , the property has to be in the market for at least one month before it can be rented out?
