We are landlords who have rented the same house to a couple for 1 yr. 8 mo. The couple would like to move and thereby would be terminating their lease. (they have signed a 1 yr. and a 6 mo. lease previous) We, the landlords re-wrote the lease with the new dates and mailed it to them to sign about 2 months ago; they received the lease and said they would mail it back. Some time passed and unfortunately, we, the landlords forgot about the lease to this day. What protection do we have now? Can we still charge them a fee for breaking the lease? Do we still have to honor their last months rent and how do we handle the damage deposit that is if there is no damage? Our lease does have a "holding over" clause. Does holding over mean we are still covered by the items listed on the original lease?
