I am being laid off from my job and am needing to terminate my lease 1 month early. My property manager stated that if I find a new tenant to sign a new lease at the new higher rent amount then I can get out of the lease a month early. The catch is he is stating that I would need to pay for a full months rent however move out of the unit 1-2 weeks early to allow for him to prepare the unit for the new tenants. Additionally, he is stating that my security deposit will not be returned to me due to breaking the lease although the lease does not state this anywhere. Is it legal for him to keep my deposit for anything outside of damages if the unit has been rented out prior to my departure and me giving him 2 weeks of rent paid for him to take his time and prepare the unit for the next tenant?
